Cervantes is situated just 250 kilometers by road from Perth city, and is therefore easily accessible to visitors wishing to visit for either a day, passing through on their journey north, or wishing to make Cervantes the base for a unique Turquoise coast experience.
There are three major routes to Cervantes from Perth, route maps are included at the end of this booklet. T
The first via Midland, Bullsbrook, Gin Gin, and Cataby is best suited for visitors exiting the city or southern suburbs and includes attractions such as the Swan Valley, the RAAF base at Pearce, Reagans Ford, and passes through (or by) a number of National Parks and conservation reserves. Great Northern Highway Left onto Brand Highway, Left onto Bibby Road, Right onto Munbinea Road, Left onto Cervantes Road, Left onto Indian Ocean Drive, Right back onto Cervantes Road.
The second, best suited to visitors leaving from the northern suburbs, follows the coast north past Yanchep National Park and Lancelin joining up to the Indian Ocean Drive which opened September 2010. This take you past Wedge Island and Grey. The Pinnacles turn off is just south of the Cervantes turn off. Wanneroo Road straight onto Indian Ocean Drive, Left onto Cervantes Road.
The third and least direct route takes the visitor on a leisurely drive via the Great Northern and Midlands Highways through the historic towns of Bindoon, New Norcia, and Moora, before turning west and joining the Brand Highway at Badgingarra. Usage of this route in combination with either routes one or two can make your visit to the Mid West and Turquoise Coast truly memorable.
Visitors using any of these routes may wish to make a small detour from the direct route to visit the Waddi Farms resort, famous for it’s wildflower and wildlife presentations.
