Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Western Australia is a tapestry of diverse landscapes and rich Aboriginal and European history. This full-day tour begins with morning pickup at your Perth hotel and a drive through scenic Swan Valley, the historic suburb of Guildford and the citrus-growing region of Bindoon.

Listen to onboard commentary from your guide along the way, and make your first stop at New Norcia. Learn about the history of the town, which was first established in 1846 as a mission to the Aboriginal community and is home to Australia’s only Benedictine Abbey. Tour the town with a local guide, and visit a museum housing gifts presented to the abbey from various popes and Spanish royalty. You’ll have a chance to purchase unique goods handmade by the monastery, such as olive oil, nut cake, fruit wine and fresh-baked bread followed by a Fish and Chips lunch at the New Norcia Hotel.

Next, we visit the Western Wildflower Farm for a brief educational talk about wildflowers. We then explore otherworldly landscape of Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park, where you can walk among the mystical limestone stacks scattered throughout sandy dunes. Snap photos of fragrant wildflower fields (August to December only), and stop at a store featuring bouquets of dried flowers in all seasons.

Relax on the return drive down the coast to Perth, where your full-day tour concludes in the evening.

We had a wonderful time on this tour from start to finish. A very family oriented tour suitable for all age group. The driver/tour guide Tomas is professional and handled unforeseen circumstance well our coach air-con spoiled!!. The lunch at the New Norcia Hotel is awesome, tasty fish and chips.

Excellent tour that visited the unique Pinnacles Desert, allowed an insight into the history of the New Norcia monastic settlement, and included a visit to an Australian wildflower exporter farm with a well-informed driver. Only issue was the poor coach with no viable speaker system, an out-of-order toilet, no leg rests and at least one seat that reclined of its own accord. plus a dangerously high step at the exit.

Trip was OK, but there is a lot of driving and its a long day. In my opinion, the Pinnacles are not that spectacular versus - say - the Stone Forest in Yunnan, China. If I had to choose between this trip and Wave Rock, I would prefer Wave Rock,

A great day out. Our guide/driver, Paul, entertained us all day with commentary about the early settlers and local fauna and flora. New Norcia is interesting. No wildflowers but lunch at the wildflower centre was delicious. The Pinnacles are amazing. The drive was comfortable with interesting scenery all the way. Highly recommend.
