Exmouth to Sal Sailis (90km - 1.5hrs)

From Learmonth Airport your first accommodation awaits you - Sal Salis is a remote, beachside safari ‘glamping’ camp nestled in the dunes of the Cape Range National Park, on the shores of Ningaloo Reef.

Depending on your choice of accommodation option, Sal Sails can collect from the airport or you can hire a car, continuing north around the Exmouth Gulf (92km – 1.5hrs). With just nine luxury wilderness tents on property, you will share this striking location on the reef (and one of Australia's best kept natural secrets) with few others.

Overnight: Sal Salis, Cape Range National Park

Sal Salis to Coral Bay (200km – 3hrs)

Depending on which Sal Sails accommodation option you choose, either return to the Airport via Sal Salis’ transfer service or if you have hired a car from the airport, start traveling south towards Coral Bay.
