It was amazing~ so close to these cute animals and the fun sandboarding, wish i can do it one more again. and there is a lot of food in lunch box. I love it~
Tour guide was very informative, had so much fun going sandboarding in the Lancelin Sand dunes, and the Pinnacles Dessert was awesome, alot bigger than I thought, good photo opportunities. Fish and chips at Lobster Shack is delicious! Very good seafood there. Varied tour, lots of different things to do.
Overall I really enjoyed this trip and the sandboarding was absolutely fabulous - even for a nearly 50 year old!!! The Pinnacles were impressive once you were among them, but the initial view was disappointing - but that is only my opinion. The lobster factory visit was interesting and previous comments about it being horrible and cruel I do not think were necessary - how else does this food source get to our tables? The quick visit to Caversham was good. The stop at York was however extremely brief and I think the information about morning coffee in York is possibly a little exagerated!! We had 20-25 minutes which only allowed me to actually "run" to the cafe (join a queue)and then "run" to the toilet queue and that was it. It's really only a toilet stop.
The 4WD over the dunes was excellent as well.
The driver was extremely good and informative about where we were passing as well. We saw emus and kangaroos in the bush which was brilliant.
Great tour guide with detailed introduction of local scenery and landscape. I truly enjoyed the whole trip. I recommend doing this in seasons that are not so hot. The desert can be up to 40 degrees. Do take tons of water with you. Don't wear sandals to the sandboarding but normal shoes. Shorts are better than pants. I regretted not trying diving down the sand dunes. Oh well, next time then!
More time at Caversham, and cut out the lobster factory. Sandboarding and 4wd was fantastic!!
I was looking forward to the Pinnacles part of the tour and by the time this part of the tour finally arrived I was a bit disappointed with the almost flipant manner in which this phenomenon was dealt with - perhaps the heat didn't help? The 4wd'ing was a bit farcical once we discovered that we were basically going in circles over the same tracks and the sandboarding might have been exhilirating for a 2 year old (maybe)? The drivers also seemed to be more concerned with the time and schedule rather than ensuring every one had a good time.
Overall the tour was enjoyable and given the distances it was good that a number of stops were included.
A direct Pinnacles only tour might also be worth including - if this doesn't already exist.
