Pinnacles and Swan Valley Day Trip from Perth Including Caversham Wildlife Park, Vineyard Lunch, Pinnacles and Sandboarding
Experience an action packed Pinnacles day tour from Perth as you get to stroke koalas and feed kangaroos at Caversham Wildlife Park. Enjoy lunch at a beautiful vineyard in the Swan Valley with a glass of wine/beer, before visiting the Nambung National Park to explore the amazing Pinnacles and see the sand dunes as you go sandboarding in Lancelin.
This fun packed full day trip departs from Perth at 8.30am with the first stop being in Caversham Wildlife Park where you get to feed kangaroos and get up close to koalas. You will also get to see a wide range of other animals, birds and marsupials that are native to Australia. After spending time with these amazing Australian icons, jump back on the bus and take a short drive to the beautiful Swan Valley.
The Swan Valley is well known for a wide range of internationally acclaimed vineyards, restaurants, cafes and art galleries. On this tour you will get to choose your lunch from a menu at a beautiful Swan Valley vineyard accompanied by a glass of wine, beer or a soft drink.
After lunch, take a drive up the Indian Ocean Road to the Nambung National Park for a close look at the Pinnacles. The Pinnacles are fascinating limestone formations up to 13-feet (4-meters) high that some say were derived from seashells thousands of years ago. 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, there is a modern discovery center housing fascinating interpretative displays with details of the Pinnacles themselves as well as the flora and fauna of the park.
Aboard the bus again, 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, at which point you can take photos up close to the Pinnacles.
Next, head south 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).
Returns back to Perth at around 7.30pm having experienced some of the best activities the region has to offer.
