      Day-by-Day Itinerary

      Day 1

      Stay at one of Australia's premier boutique hotels, COMO The Treasury, housed in Perth's beautifully restored 19th century State Buildings. We recommend a signature treatment at COMO Shambala Spa before a free evening to dine at Elizabeth Quay or one of the many nearby Perth restaurants. This contemporary luxury hotel is a perfect staging point for a West Australian luxury journey.

      Day 2

      After breakfast at Post, board your ferry to Rottnest Island. Rottnest is a protected nature reserve located just offshore from Perth, and known for its turquoise bays and as the home of the friendly Quokka. There are no cars on Rottnest, so bike hire is included today to ensure you can explore the pristine bays and bike paths around the island. There are several scenic restaurant options for lunch but we recommend purchasing something from the island bakery to enjoy as a picnic on the sand at one of the beautiful bays. Later pop in to Hotel Rottnest for a glass of wine overlooking Thomson Bay before boarding your ferry back to Perth. After a stroll back from the jetty we recommend dinner on your doorstep tonight at the Treasury Precinct – try Petition, Long Chim or Wildflower.

Sal Salis is set right on the beach within Cape Range National Park and overlooking Ningaloo Reef. Twice-daily guided activities and complimentary snorkelling equipment and kayaks are included with your stay here, along with all food and wine.

      Day 8

      Today is a free day to snorkel off the beach, kayak to nearby secret snorkel spots, or join morning and afternoon excursions with your camp guides. A hike at Mandu Mandu gorge or a paddle up Yardi Creek is well worth the effort, and you’ll be sure to spot some native wallabies and wildlife whatever you decide to do. Your hammock is also an option for some relaxation before your big day out tomorrow. Dinner tonight and sunset drinks will round out the day.

      This is it, the grand crescendo to your ten-day west coast adventure. You’ll be transferred after breakfast to the Tantabiddi boat ramp to join your whale shark cruise. The onboard marine biologist will teach you about these giants of the sea as you cruise to the outer reef. Then it's into the water for your up-close encounter and a swim with a whale shark or three. It’s an awe-inspiring moment you won't soon forget, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have time for a few separate swims with your new friends before some snorkelling this afternoon. You’re also likely to encounter Manta rays, dugongs and turtles on this epic day out. Back at camp, share tales of your day over sunset drinks and dinner before falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean one last time.
