Perth to Denham round trip

Will be travelling to Denham (3 nights stay) stopping at Cervantes (2 nights) Geraldton (1night) Kilbarri (3 nights) Will do return trip in 2 days by quickest route. Will this be the Brand Highway and where should we overnight that is approx. half way. Or should we go back to Perth on the Indian Ocean road and overnight where?

1. Re: Perth to Denham round trip

I would allow one night only in Cervantes - its a very small coastal fishing town and assuming you are stopping there to see the Pinnacles, after that there is not much to see or do - give yourself an extra day at Denham/Shark Bay/Monkey Mia - there is much more to see and do in that area.

Brand Highway is the more direct route back, and the best choice of accommodation will be at Geraldton again. Brand Highway is also used by a lot of heavy transport vehicles - some of these "road trains" have two or three trailers, so be esp. cautious when passing or being passed.

Maybe consider stopping overnight on the way up at Greenough (25 kms south of Geraldton) instead of Geraldton - its scenic and historical (in WA terms!) and close to the scenic coastal route which i assume you are taking on your way up.

Dongara is a very pleasant place to stop overnight or longer.
