We can wander around rural towns, find odd histories and epic stories.
We can eat local produce, and see wildlife that the rest of the world travels the globe to experience.

We don’t have to drive for days to start the adventure. And, as you see here, the drive times between icons are relatively short.
The Pinnacles, Greenough, the Geraldton coast, historic Northampton, Pink Lake, Kalbarri and its Skywalk, Shark Bay World Heritage Area, Coral Bay, Exmouth set against Cape Range, and Ningaloo Reef.
