The Pinnacles. Kalbarri’s wildflowers. Monkey Mia’s dolphins. This trip is stuffed with highlights, though as Lee Atkinson points out, the road is one in itself: “The desert meets the sea on this drive. The colours are astonishing: red, red dirt and turquoise seas, and every town has a different story.” Of course, an absolute must on this journey is to swim with whale sharks, but we’ve already blabbed all about that (see #12). Be sure to set aside at least 10 days (and then some) to really take it all in.
