The Pinnacles


The Pinnacles, two hours north of Perth, are an easily accessible natural wonder waiting to be explored. Next to the town of Cervantes and located within the desert landscape of Nambung National Park, the Pinnacles are fascinating limestone formations up to four metres high that were derived from seashells thousands of years ago. The Pinnacles themselves are a must see natural wonder on any trip to Perth, throw in a visit to a beautiful beach, Yanchep National Park to see Koalas and a factory tour and lunch at the Lobster Shack and this day trip is a great day out for all the family.



Highlights of the tour:


- Koalas - Get up close to Koalas on the Koala Boardwalk at Yanchep National Park, home to Western Grey Kangaroos and a variety of native bird life


- Lobster - Tour around the famous Lobster Shack factory in Cervantes


- Lunch - Fish and Chips Lunch at the Lobster Shack with a cold drink (Optional Extra - upgrade to a fresh half lobster lunch with chips and salad for $15)


- Pinnacles - Visit to the Nambung National Park to explore the amazing Pinnacles


- Sand Dunes - See the Sand Dunes and go Sandboarding in Lancelin (sand boards provided for the adventurous explorers)


All of the above is included in the price of the tour. The only additional expense you may incur is for the lobster lunch upgrade.



What the Explorers can expect on the tour:



Koalas, Kangaroos and Bird life



This fun packed full day trip departs from Perth at 8.30am and the first stop is Yanchep National Park where Explorers get to walk along the 240 metre Koala Boardwalk and get up close to Koalas as they sit in eucalyptus trees. Early in the morning you will often see the Western Grey Kangaroo grazing by the lake as an abundance of native birds perch in the woodland and wetlands. After an hour or so spent with these amazing Australian icons we jump back on the Explorer bus and head north up the Indian Ocean Road for just over two hours to the small fishing town of Cervantes.


Lobster Factory and Lunch

Once in Cervantes we visit the Lobster Shack to take a firsthand look at the region’s multi-million dollar lobster industry. The tour starts with a video presentation to find out how the rock lobster is caught, before heading into the factory to walk directly above the 20 tonnes of live rock lobsters that are housed in the Lobster Shack. The tour comes with an audio guide in many different languages including English, Mandarin, Japanese, French, Italian, German and Korean as well as a version for kids.


Following the tour we sit down  at the Lobster Shack for lunch which is included in the price of the tour. If you would like to upgrade to a fresh lobster lunch you can do so for an extra fifteen dollars.



After lunch we take a short drive to the Nambung National Park for a close look at the Pinnalces. The park itself covers an area of 17,487 hectares and provides a natural habitat for an extensive range of animals and bird life. Luckily for us there is a modern discovery centre which houses fascinating interpretative displays with details of the Pinnacles themselves as well as the flora and fauna of the park. Aboard the Explorer Bus we will see the Pinnacles on a scenic drive through the park before setting off on foot for an easy paced walk through this eerie yet fascinating landscape.


Sandboarding and Sand Dunes

Back aboard the Explorer Bus we head south for an hour to finish off the day at the adventure filled town of Lancelin. Here you can admire the extensive sand dunes and for the more adventurous explorers perhaps try out Sandboarding using the sand boards provided (think Snowboarding but replace the snow with sand).


The Explorer Bus returns us back to Perth at around 7.30pm having experienced some of the best activities that the region has to offer.
