Over a thousand kilometres north of Perth lies your first stop, resting at the shore of one of the world’s largest fringing reefs. Escorted by air, touch down at Ningaloo—one of the Earth’s last pristine ocean paradises, offering 300 kilometres of corals, turtles, tropical fish, manta rays, humpback whales, and whale sharks existing in harmony.
Nestle into beach-side paradise within the sand dunes of Cape Leveque’s picturesque coastline. Welcome to Sal Salis, offering sixteen luxury safari tents and a central lodge to immerse you in the surrounding landscape, mere metres from the sparkling waters. The only resort in the World Heritage Cape Range National Park, Sal Salis is dedicated to conservation, offering solar-generated power and delicious and sustainable meals prepared by their on-site chef. Team this sustainable indulgence with their select open bar, and indulge each evening while tucked under the blanket of the Milky Way.
Your days are open for excursions, and each day’s activities adapt to the world’s whims. A range of water-sports equipment including kayaking, SUPs, snorkelling equipment and wetsuits are always available, while snorkelling tours amongst exquisite corals and guided walks in Cape Range National Park will provide rich insight from your guides. Depending on the time of year, you may enjoy nature in its splendour as whale sharks and humpback whales accompanied by baby calves migrate through its warm waters, manta rays glide alongside snorkellers, or loggerhead and green turtles lay their eggs along the shore.
Three days in beachside bliss in this exceptional fringing reef will set the scene of the beachside beauty Australia has on offer. Make your way north to the Exmouth Airstrip, and reconvene with your dedicated pilot to take to the skies to your next locale, found on the other side of the north-western coastline.
