- Tour Highlights
Yanchep National Park
This stunning national park 42 kilometres north of Perth is home to caves, native bush and koala colonies. Stop here and stroll along the 240 metre koala boardwalk to view one of Australia’s favourite native animals in a natural environment and learn more about these fascinating creatures.
Pinnacle Desert Sunset
View the sensational colours in the sky as the sun sets over the Pinnacle Desert while you stroll through the rock formations that are believed to have been created millions of years ago when seashells were broken down into sand and then eroded by water and wind.
Pinnacle Desert Stargazing
As darkness falls over the Pinnacle Desert, amazing stars light up the night sky. With no light pollution, you will be able to see the stars in stunning detail.
Experience dinner at a traditional Western Australian tavern and soak up the true Aussie atmosphere at the old fishing town of Cervantes.
Indian Ocean Drive
Indian Ocean Drive is a scenic road taking you along the amazing Western Australian coastline towards the Pinnacle Desert.
We travel north away from the city towards Yanchep National Park for a quick comfort stop and an opportunity to see the koalas and kangaroos. From here we travel up the coast towards the magical Pinnacle Desert to view the mystical limestone rock formations. Arriving late afternoon avoids the crowds and heat and allows for breathtaking sunsets.
Experience the moon-like landscape come to life as the sunsets over the Indian Ocean and moon rises. Once darkness falls we head to the fishing town of Cervantes for our included dinner in a traditional Western Australian tavern to soak up a real Australian atmosphere before heading out into the night to experience the night sky.
We head back into the Pinnacle Desert to the observation deck to experience the tranquillity of the national park and view the night sky without light pollution. Once we have had our fill of the enormous night sky we travel straight back to Perth arriving at approximately 11.00pm.
