Pinnacles Desert with 4WD Sandboarding Adventure, Koalas and Kangaroos
A fascinating day of spectacular natural contrasts. Big sky plains, koalas and kangaroos, massive sand dunes and emerald waters lapping pristine white sandy beaches. Then the dramatic Pinnacles Desert - arid, vast seemingly lifeless yet inhabited by strange limestone pillars rising through the sand. The thrilling adventure of four wheel driving at the Lancelin Sand Dunes, is an unparalleled way of discovering this awesome environment.
We leave the city limits and cross over the Swan River travelling past Burswood Resort Casino. Then head north through the Swan Valley to Caversham Wildlife Park where we stop to view and photograph koalas and hand feed kangaroos. We then break at the small fishing settlement of Lancelin before the thrilling experience of 4-wheel driving in our giant 4WD over massive Lancelin sand dunes and the chance to try sand boarding.
Then journey along quiet back roads where kangaroos and emus are often spotted, passing through wildflower country. We move onto the Rock Lobster town of Cervantes for lunch (P3). Afterwards, visit the wildflower shop or alternatively in summer time, weather permitting enjoy a swim, or a walk on the white sandy beaches.
We then continue on to the Nambung National Park, home of the amazing Pinnacles Desert. Here your driver guide takes you for an easy paced walk through parts of this fascinating landscape covering some 404 hectares. Ensure you wear comfortable footwear, bring a hat and your camera. Later enjoy a sunset journey back to Perth. If flowering, stops to view wildflowers will be made en route with arrival back in Perth at approximately 7:30pm.
