What time of year are you planning to come?

It's not going to be a fun trip, there's a lot on the way you will miss and you really don't have much time for pit stops, let alone sightseeing. In between the towns is a lot of nothing. Plan to only drive during full daylight, as in dim and dark conditions a lot of critters, many quite large, come out to play on the roads and hitting a roo will really mess up your holiday (as well as the roo).

The closest thing to a halfway point would be Northampton, which is really just a wide spot in the road. At least if you had three days in either direction you could include overnight stops at Dongara or Geraldton, and Carnarvon, and have some sightseeing time as well.

It's a serious haul. Are you thinking Coral Bay or Exmouth?

Have you considered flying to Exmouth? Out of school holidays you might jag a cheaper flight. Hire a car there.

As previous posts note, it is a long way but with two drivers your plan is possible. We have got through to Carnarvon in one day with early start and two drivers.
