Kimberley, Pilbara and Australia’s Coral Coast

The Kimberley and The Pilbara. Names that evoke images of red rocks, blue skies and pioneering spirits. Covering the north of Western Australia, they both offer some incredible sights and experiences.

The Kimberley is bordered to the west by the Indian Ocean, to the north by the Timor Sea, to the east by the Northern Territory and to the south by the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts.

Known for red dirt, indigenous history and mining, the Pilbara is twice the size of the UK, with breathtaking natural landscapes, deep rocky gorges, crystal clear pools and stunning waterfalls, dating back two billion years and stretching over 400,000 square km.

Australia’s Coral Coast stretches along 1,100km of breathtaking coastline from Cervantes, two hours north of Perth, to the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. A boundless marine wonderland with open skies and otherworldly landscapes.

Bungle Bungle

The Bungle Bungle Range, in the East Kimberley’s World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park, is one of the most recognisable and incredible landmarks in Western Australia. From an aircraft, the orange and black stripes across the beehive-like mounds, encased in a skin of silica and algae, are clearly visible as you approach. As you sweep further over the range, a hidden world of gorges and pools is revealed, with fan palms clinging precariously to walls and crevices in the rocks. On the ground, take a guided a walk through the famous eroded towers, the awe-inspiring natural acoustics of Cathedral Gorge, and Piccaninny Creek, which only flows during the monsoon. Learn about the Kimberley climate, the six seasons and the unique flora and fauna so crucial to the lands traditional custodians. And take loads of photos!

Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef

Sal Salis is an exclusive beach safari camp nestled in the Cape Range National Park dunes: delicious, locally sourced food, a self-serve bar, impeccable service, and wildlife on land and sea. The national park offers exceptional wildlife and bird viewing, the crystal-clear dark skies display an unbelievable number of stars, and the Ningaloo Reef on your doorstep features over 500 fish species and 250 coral types. And whale sharks.

Each of the 16 eco-luxury safari tents offers view of the bush and over the Indian Ocean. Meals are shared with your fellow guests in the lodge area. The chefs take their food very seriously, with a delicious menu featuring seasonal local produce and hints of the bush and ocean.

Cruises picking up from the lodge will take you out to encounter whale sharks, humpback whales and manta rays, depending on the season. A spotter plane above keeps a keen eye out while the crew help you get kitted out with wetsuits and snorkels. Experienced guides will explain how to interact with the gentle giants, who will decide how long they want to interact with you – sometimes up to an hour! Whale sharks, humpback whales and manta rays are wild animals and their welfare is paramount, so interactions cannot be guaranteed, but the strike rate through the season is close to 100%.
