Pinnacles Desert, Koalas and Sandboarding 4WD Day Tour from Perth

Koala at Caversham Wildlife Park

After morning pickup at your Perth CBD hotel or a central meeting point, travel to the delightful Caversham Wildlife Park, where you can wander among the open-air exhibits and interact with Australia’s amazing wildlife. You'll have a chance to pet a koala, hand-feed kangaroos and pose for pictures with a wombat.

Continue on to the coastal town of Cervantes, where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the local lobster fishing industry. During an audio-guided tour of a lobster processing plant, stand on a catwalk above an impressive 20 tons of live rock lobster! Afterwards, enjoy a picnic lunch with an optional lobster upgrade at the Lobster Shack.

Experience one of Australia’s most mystical landscapes with a guided tour of Pinnacles Desert, located inside Nambung National Park. Walk among the iconic and mysterious formations that are believed to be remnants of prehistoric sea shells, and browse exhibits at the visitor center to learn more about the area’s fascinating geologic history.

Next, get your adrenaline pumping with a 4WD adventure across Lancelin’s massive sand dunes, some stretching 1.2 miles (2 km) wide. You can also careen down the dunes on a sandboard for a unique and thrilling desert experience.

Rest easy on the return drive to Perth, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off at approximately 7:30pm.

This was a day packed with awesome activities. The first stop was Caversham Wildlife Park where we got to see kangaroos, koalas, and a wombat. It was sadly a short stop but the staff and the animals were awesome. Next was a tour and lunch at The Lobster Shack. The tour was interesting and I got the upgrade to the lobster lunch. The lobster itself was delicious but sadly the chips and lobster cakes didn't come with any aioli or ketchup or anything so it was pretty dry. Most disappointing part of the day honestly. The Pinnacles were our next stop - a unique geological feature. Then we went for a drive on the sand dunes followed by sandboarding. Keith was an amazing driver and a great sandboarding instructor as well. It was an experience I won't forget. The day ended with Keith dropping me off convenient to my hotel. The day was long but for somebody that didn't have a lot of time to spend in Perth, it was perfect.

One of my favorite tours I've done. Not just the Pinnacles, but feeding the kangaroos, petting koalas, eating lobster, huge white sand dunes, great. The tour is a little long, but that is because you have a lot of ground to cover. Knowledgeable tour guide/bus driver.

A full day with a brief stop at Caversham Wildlife Park followed by a visit to the Lobster Shack for lunch.
The Pinnacles were amazing and plenty of time allowed to wander around and go to the visitors centre.
It was fun driving over the sand dunes and trying sandboarding. A very long day but worth it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

This was a very full and long day's excursion with so many fantastic experiences. We stroked koalas and handfed kangaroos, whilst at the same time getting some great background from one of the wildlife parks guides.
Then a drive to the coast to visit the lobster shack for lunch, then on to the really unusual Pinnacles desert. It actually feels eerie but has some incredible photo opportunities. Finally on to the sand dunes, our driver let some air out of the adapted coaches tyres then we were driven up and down the dunes before trying our hand at sandboarding.
Jack, our driver, gave us an informative friendly commentary and made sure we had sufficient time at each venue. A really great day worth every penny.
