The Coral Coast Highway Road Trip: a Perth to Ningaloo round trip self drive holiday.

The Coral Coast Highway winds its way from Perth to Exmouth in Western Australia (WA), offering you every opportunity to immerse yourself in all that Australia's Coral Coast has to offer. From trekking through rugged gorges in Kalbarri, to drifting weightlessly over coral reef at Ningaloo, this round trip self-drive itinerary has it all.


  • We recommend at least 11-12 days for this road trip, but longer if you have the time so you can truly soak up everything the Coral Coast Highway has to offer.
  • You don't need a 4WD, although there are some areas which are 4WD-access only. Many of these locations, such as the northern reaches of Francois Peron National Park, can be experience on a guided tour. However, if you don't want to take your own car or would prefer a 4WD, you can hire a 4WD-camper from RedSands Campers or Wicked Campers - just make sure to check any hire conditions relating to off-roading and 4WDing.
  • There is a range of accommodation options in the Coral Coast to suit all interests, from hotels and motels, caravan parks, camping, glamping and eco-wilderness retreats, live-aboard cruises and outback station stays.
