The tour commences with a hotel pick up from Exmouth accommodation. Get fitted out with all the gear you’ll need for an overnight trek.

Stop one is Yardie Creek Gorge with amazing views of red limestone cliff faces and spectacular views across the gorge to the Ningaloo Reef. Though the rocky terrain may be treacherous at times, you’ll be rewarded with incredible scenery and encounters with wildlife such as Rock Wallabies, Dingoes and shy Echidnas in their natural habitat.

The overnight trek of Cape Range National Park continues with a trek to your campsite in the upper reaches of Yardie Creek. As you arrive at camp, it’s time to set up and enjoy an early dinner. Timed to perfection, you’ll be here to witness Humpback whales frolicking in the ocean below and the magical colours of a glowing sunset. Spend the evening stargazing up at the Milky Way.

Rising with the sun on day two, continue the adventure cutting through sandstone terraces and pristine beaches as you return to your vehicle to deliver hikers back to Exmouth. Swap the zoo for the wild and get amongst it on this two day trek of Cape Range National Park from Exmouth.
