Ultimate Perth to Exmouth Road Trip
Driving from Perth to Exmouth has become one of Western Australia’s quintessential road trips. I moved to Geraldton a few years ago and set up a holiday stay there (clocking 75’000km on the car in the process!) so I’ve come to know the Coral Coast like the back of my hand. This itinerary is a selection of my favourite things to see and do that will offer you the most memorable experiences. These highlights are what I recommended to guests and come with local insider knowledge. ❤️
