Tour Overview

A few hours north of Perth, Mother Nature’s finest offerings are on display where wildflowers bloom on Western Australia’s Coral Coast and hinterland all year round. The best time though is between late July and early October when blankets of brilliant wildflowers colour the Outback landscape. Why not experience this incredible natural beauty on a soft-adventure, small group tour aboard a purpose built 6WD tour vehicle and hosted by an expert driver guide, together with a professional photographer tour escort.

Highlights include Nambung National Park (the Pinnacle Desert), Kalbarri National Park, Coalseam Conservation Park, historic homesteads, the leaning trees of Greenough, a private cruise on the mighty Murchison River and so much more, all the while surrounded by the colours of Spring in one of the most vibrant wildflower regions of Australia.

David Mobbs and Danielle Mobbs

David Mobbs is a Territorian, with 30 years of tour guiding experience. He grew up on cattle stations and in Aboriginal communities and gained a respect and understanding of the land and culture from an early age. He was one of the first to lead Kakadu tours, had 4 years guiding in Central Australia and has been taking Kimberley safaris to the region for over 25 years, so he’s likely to be the most experienced guide in Northern Australia. With extensive knowledge in Aboriginal rock art and culture, bush tucker, flora, fauna, natural history and geology, David has assisted in the making of several documentary programs, including ‘The World Around Us’ on such networks as CNN and the BBC. He has also been an advisor for several books on the Top End.

Moderate

This program includes places which can only be explored on foot and where walking tours may be a little longer and not always on the flat. Accommodation may have some stairs and or have some rooms which may involve some walking to access.
All our programs naturally involve some walking in order to discover bet­ter the places visited and, although we arrange porterage where this is available, participants are expected to be able to handle their own bags. Our program leaders will always try to make as much of the program as possible available for those who find walking longer distances, uphill or down steps difficult but, in same places, this cannot always be avoided.
If you have any concerns at all about your level of fitness, please do not hesitate to talk to us and discuss further with the experts who know the particular demands of each program.
