With the devastation of Cyclone Seroja earlier in the year (mostly) in the rear view mirror and the weather warming up, there’s no better time to head to Kalbarri than right now. This stunning section of WA’s Coral Coast has been welcoming visitors back for a few months now, and if you’re yet to make the trip please read on below for a little itinerary on how to enjoy it over a couple of days.
Kalbarri is a very do-able 6-7 hour drive from Perth, so to make the most of your trip we suggest taking the Friday or Monday off work either side of a weekend to give you a couple of days to do some serious exploring. You’ll also need to make sure you sort your accommodation ahead of time, along with booking any tours you’ve got your eye on ahead of time. The Australia’s Coral Coast website is an excellent resource for both, offering plenty of info on – and the ability to book – accomm and tours, along with food and drink if you’re looking to dine out.
For the sake of this itinerary we’ll embark on Friday early morning, giving us plenty of time to get to Kalbarri before sundown and even a couple of sneaky stop overs along the beautiful Coral Coast. Pull into Jurien Bay or Lancelin for a sneaky lunch, otherwise go all the way through to Geraldton and stock up on supplies before heading onwards to Kalbarri.
There’s a variety of different accommodation types around Kalbarri, ranging from plenty of non-powered camping sites and humble beach cottages right up to resort-style living by the pool. There’s even a few station stays, and regardless of what you’re after your best starting point is the Stay & Sleep section of the Australia’s Coral Coast website, and booking ahead is essential!
