Adelaide is the starting point for your travelling adventure whether your heading west to Perth, up north to the Outback and Alice Springs & Darwin, or starting a road trip to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road.

 

 

 

 

 

Adelaide to Perth

 

The trip across the Nullarbor from Adelaide to Perth is one of the longer road trips in Australia.  Endless straight roads that seem to go forever....Stopovers at some magic places like the Flinders Ranges, and across at Streaky Bay , make the journey worthwhile before hitting the South West Coast of WA.  From there you hit the coast and head up to Perth via Esperance, Albany & Margaret River.

Whale watching at Albany starts in May and continues through to October.  Definitely allow 1 or 2 days while heading through this area to ensure you have a great experience.
