Travel by road
Excellent road conditions make it easy for those wanting to travel around Western Australia’s Coral Coast at their own pace. The North West Coastal Highway traverses the length of the entire region, passing right through Geraldton in the south and Carnarvon in the north, with good sealed roads leading off the highway to coastal and country towns.
Please note distances between roadhouse facilities can be long in the north of the region, so make sure you bear this in mind when planning your journey.
Hire cars are available in all major towns throughout the Coral Coast.

This resource is available in nine languages – English, Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Malay, and is a free A5-sized guide that provides helpful information about Western Australian road rules and tips for driving in urban and regional areas.
