Sandboarding in the Pinnacles Desert
A little more than two hours north of Perth, the Pinnacles limestone formations are located inside Nambung National Park. The surrounding Pinnacles Desert provides the chance to see more of Western Australia outside the city and discover the sport of sandboarding. Here are a few ideas for choosing a day trip that suits your interests.
Sandboarding typically takes place on the large sand dunes of Lancelin, a coastal town just south of Nambung National Park.
Some day trips include a stop at Caversham Wildlife Park where you can see Aussie animals like koalas and kangaroos.
Combine your desert adventure with wine tasting by selecting a day trip that includes the Swan Valley wine region just outside Perth.
To explore native bushland and wildlife, opt for a tour that includes Yanchep National Park.
