This afternoon, arrive at Mt. Remarkable National Park in the Southern Flinders Ranges to enjoy an afternoon bushwalk. Later, arrive at Spear Creek Holiday Park, which is set adjacent to the Western slopes of the Flinders Ranges in the middle of a 21,000-acre working sheep station. Relax with your new travel companions over dinner. Then kick back and enjoy front-row seats to one of Earth’s most spectacular light shows as you roll out your swag under a blanket of stars twinkling stars.

Following a picnic lunch, peel on a wetsuit for a two-hour learn-to-surf lesson on a pristine beach with Streaky Bay Surf School. Those not wanting to surf will be able to relax, swim or wander the shores. After a big day, arrive in Penong, an outback town famous for its dozens of windmills.

Stretching approximately 200 kilometres along the Great Australian Bight, Bunda Cliffs are the world’s longest continuous line of sea cliffs. Breathe deep and take it all in.

Stop at the iconic Nullarbor Roadhouse, marvel at the ruins of an old telegraph station and, come late afternoon, cross the border into Western Australia. Tonight’s entertainment is courtesy of the celestial sphere bush camping under the southern skies on the Nullarbor.

Hop back on the bus for a dreamy coastal drive towards Albany. We’ll stop at The Gap and Natural Bridge before continuing to the turquoise and calm waters of Elephant Rocks. Then just up the road, descend into Greens Pool, a white sandy beach framed by huge granite boulders, primed for swimming in the warmer months. From the coast to the forest, walk among the old-growth forests of the Walpole Wilderness Region with the last stop of the day at the largest Tingle Tree in Western Australia.

Go beneath the Earth’s surface for a 45-minute semi-guided tour of the exquisitely decorated Ngilgi Cave. Above ground, discover 600 million years of stories associated with the land and its people. Follow a pathway through the native bushland bringing to life the creation of the land, cave formations, cultural connection and native flora and fauna through a series of experiential nodes.

In Busselton, take a stroll along the 19th-century jetty stretching 1.8km into gorgeous Geographe Bay and have some free time for lunch. Then complete your ten day adventure with a meaningful experience at FAWNA to participate in some volunteer conservation work. This wonderful not-for-profit organisation, run solely by volunteers, was established in 1984 to support wildlife rehabilitators to provide the best care for orphaned, injured, or abandoned wildlife. Tasks vary from tour to tour but include things like cleaning wildlife enclosures, gardening or planting trees.
