Itinerary

We invite you to join us on tour for a Pinnacles Day Tour where we will take you to some of the most stunning natural regions along the West Coast. Enjoy a one-day getaway to some of Western Australia’s most impressive natural wonders as you leave city life behind.

Guests will enjoy a visit to the Yanchep lavender farm as a special treat. Enjoy some of their delicious products at their cafe before continuing on to the city, such as lavender ice cream, scones, and cheesecake (included in the tour).

For lunch, we venture into the Cervantes home to the famous Lobster Shack where you can choose from their menu and enjoy delicious WA seafood washed down with a refreshing beverage as you take in the beautiful coastal scenery. (lunch at guest’s expense)

Take an after-lunch stroll along the Lake Thetis boardwalk to view some of the world’s oldest known living fossils known as Stromatolites.  In a region abundant with flora and fauna, we’ll wander through a kaleidoscopic of wildflowers, including banksias, bottlebrush, heath, grass trees, and kangaroo paws; all bursting with life, when in season.

Once we’ve been able to fill our lungs with the fresh sea air, it’s time to embark on a journey to the Nambung National Park in order to witness the remarkable Pinnacles desert.  As for how the Pinnacles were built, there are many theories, such as petrified trees, seashells, or ancient lava fields that were submerged under water millions of years ago. Thousands of limestone pillars rise eerily out of the desert, we will visit the visitor information centre to learn all about these structures before walking a few hundred metres to get up close to them.

After experiencing the local sights and scent of Australia’s west coast, we return to Perth around 7pm.
