Ever wondered what happens outside of Perth? Come and explore the north side Western Australia and see what it has to offer! It’s an all-season road trip with warm weather all year round. ☀️☀️☀️

Pink Lake Hutt Lagoon

Heading north from Perth you can experience the unique Pink Lake. You can travel up to the look-out to take in the serenity of the lake and its amazing natural surroundings or walk along the edge of the lake to experience a different perspective.

Kalbarri National Park

Just a few hours drive up the coast from the Pink Lake is Kalbarri. Kalbarri is full of adventure as you hike through the gorges to experience breath-taking views from remarkable spots, such as the Natural Window and Z-bend.

The park offers amazing experiences such as:
