Moore River
Just over a 1-hour drive away along the scenic route of Indian Ocean Drive and Brand Highway, Moore River is a beautiful natural town for a day trip or weekend getaway. Moore River is where the river meets the sea so be sure to start your day off with a swim. The quaint town is bustling with family friendly activities such as sand boarding, swimming, canoeing, fishing, exploring the lighthouse and much more, ensuring there is plenty to do for the whole family. Finish strong with a delicious spread of fish and chips on the beach as you watch an iconic WA sunset over the water. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Less than an hour’s drive away from home, Lancelin is an iconic spot to explore the WA coast and soak up the sun, surf and sand dunes. Kids and adults alike will love getting out on the boogie board for some action on the dunes and, if you don’t already own one, you can hire a sandboard for an affordable $12.50 for up to 2.5 hours. Finish the day at the local pub, The Tavern, to enjoy a classic pub meal overlooking the ocean with a drink in hand, the sunset is not to be missed!

The gateway to Western Australia’s Pinnacles Desert, Cervantes is the beginning of Australia’s Coral Coast region. An hour and half drive will have you arriving at tranquil waters, sandy beaches and marine life, and have you feeling relaxed and zen in no time.  There is a huge list of things to do and see at Cervantes but we think the Pinnacles should be at the top of your list!

Located in the heart of the Nambung National Park, the Pinnacles Desert is one of Australia’s most unique landscapes, featuring thousands of limestone spires, some up to 12 metres tall. Explore the desert on a four-kilometre driving trail or stroll through at your own pace on the 1.2 kilometre walking trail. The kids will love exploring the flora, fauna and don’t forget to get a photo too! To plan your day out at Cervantes, visit: https://www.australiascoralcoast.com/destination/cervantes

Located in the picturesque Avon Valley region, this country town is filled with boutique shops, a variety of cafes and pubs, the Avon River, walking tracks, local animals and lots of sights to see such as the museum and heritage walk. During wildflower season (August – November) see if you can find pink everlastings and a variety or orchids, soak up some history and heritage to learn about the fascinating artefacts and stories of convicts, war heroes and more and end the day with a delicious pub lunch or coffee at one of the charming cafes. Discover where the legend of Moondyne Joe began at Newcastle Gaol museum, Connor’s Mill museum and along a self-guided heritage walk throughout town that brings the past to the present.
