The day starts with a visit to the small coastal town of Guilderton. Here you can stroll along the boardwalk to take in the views of the estuary and observe the array of birdlife that call the area home. Climb the Yoodook Karla Kada stairs for views along the coastline and hear stories of shipwrecks that lay below the turquoise waters. The area is an important meeting place for the local Aboriginal tribes, and you’ll learn about the traditional use of the local native plants in bush medicine and food.
Thrill-seekers will enjoy our next stop at the Lancelin sand dunes! The soft white sands are shifted by the coastal winds into sand dunes up to three stories high – perfect for sandboarding. Grab a board and experience the exhilaration of surfing the sand!
Our next stop offers another opportunity to appreciate the incredible natural scenery of Western Australia. We’ll head to the Nilgen Nature Reserve to admire unique wildflowers such as the vibrant bottlebrush, kangaroo paw and grass trees. Out of wildflower season, we’ll instead travel to Hangover Bay, where you can cool off with a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean or try to spot the local marine animals including dolphins and sea lions.
In the afternoon, enjoy a guided tour through the Pinnacles Desert, followed by a scrumptious picnic dinner amongst the unique natural rock formations. Be amazed by the sunset scenery amongst limestone stacks with the picture-perfect background of the golden hours before sunset. Take plenty of photos of this picturesque background of the sunset over the Pinnacles. Once the darkness has set in, we take the opportunity to observe the night sky away from the bright lights of the city. Gaze through the astronomical equipment as you hear stories of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, before we conclude our 1 Day Pinnacles tour back to Perth.
