Road Trip - Perth to Exmouth?

Hi,

I'm planning a holiday with a friend in the december/january period for 10 days.

i was thinking of spending 2 days in Perth and then driving to Exmouth and back in the remaining 8, but that might be overshooting it a bit. Does anyone have any suggested itineraries or timeframes? Our plan is to see things along the way, not just reach a specific destination.

Monkey Mia is one place we definitely want to go. We would have loved to reach Cable Beach but, alas, too far.

Thanks.

Hi Laurah -

We drove from Perth to Exmouth and return a few years back. Our itinerary, travel times/distances and what we did along the way can be found here:

tripadvisor.com/GoListDetail-i22664-Road_tri…

Eight days really isn't sufficient, unless you plan to drive one way and fly back, but that will cost you some $$$ as one way rentals are quite dear.

I absolutely would not do this in Dec/Jan though - the heat and humidity would really put me off, not to mention it's cyclone season.
