This was a real adventure trip and not a common coach-tour. The airconditioned and comfortable coach as welll as the friendly driver made the entire trip to become "strongly recommended"!
Had very little time to spend at Caversham wildlife park. Just managed to cover the 3 main marsupials namely the koala, kangaroo and the wombat before we were whisked off again in the bus. But the pinnacles desert was a wonder of its own class. Seeing the limestone jutting out of the desert sands was amazing. And sand boarding was extremely fun too. It was a perfect Aussie experience I would never forget.
Excellent tour, very much enjoyed. We had to ring up the local number in advance to find out the pickup time, but other than that it was a great day.
It was a nice and good trip. Pinnacles desert has to be seen. We also liked to touch the koalas and the kangaroos. They are so cute.
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!
Really enjoyed this trip. The stops are well planned out so you're not spending too much time on a coach. There's the animal park in the morning you get the opportunity to stroke koalas, kangaroos and wombats - not to be missed, then a stop for lunch, then onto the Pinnacles for great photos and later in the afternoon, onto sand-boarding and the 4WD! A very enjoyable day out.
Loved the afternoon tea stop in the middle of no where with the lovey ladies and home made cookie.
This tour packs a lot of different experiences into one day -- Caversham Wild Animal Park, the lobster processing plant, the pinnacles and sandboarding/4WD.
A very good day out and interesting. Necessitated long distance travel but that is not the tour's fault! The highlights are miles apart.
Very good tour with ranger of the kangaroo and koala sanctuary. Feeding the kangaroo was fun for all ages; getting as close to koalas on this trip was better than anywhere else in Australia I have tried.
The rock lobster plant: interesting and the lobster tasted good. A bit unprepared for the ethics.
The Pinnacles was worth a look and possibly even a short walk although the sun beating down means you need to sun-screen well and use a hat.
The sand boarding was fun. Safe enough. It is a trek back to the top again but it is worth it.
Footwear: sensible shoes rather than sandals. Take sunscreen and a hat.
Our driver was just that: a driver. There was so much going by (scenery and interesting things) that he could have commented on but he didn't.
Overall - worthwhile doing because of the sanctuary and you see a selection of sights.
The tour was well organized. Our first stop at Caversham Wildlife park was quite short, but this was due to the long ride we had to make to Cervantes. The upgraded lobster lunch was delicious and worth it. Pinnacles desert was really amazing and the last stop at Lancelin for the sandboarding adventure was really fun! Only minor thing was that the mic on the bus was hissing whenever the busdriver would not turn this off. So we had to constantly remind him to turn this off. Other than this I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Really nice tour!
Adapted for the needs of tourists (=good and bad): everywhere just enough time to take some nice photos. Would be even better if you could spend some more time at some locations.
The visit to the wildlife park was really nice: we could see kangaroos, a wombat and koalas from really close, touch them and make some nice photos. The people there were really friendly.
I really loved the pinnacles!! (although a bit more time there would be better)
Sandboarding was really nice.
The lobster lunch was a bit disappointing. Maybe because we first visited the lobster factory and so I didn't feel like eating lobster anymore. It was really hard to eat them with a plastic for from a basket. The taste was not as good as expected. To be honest, the salad lunch of the others looked better.
This tour is a very nice day, starting form Perth, heading out to the Caversham Wildlife Park, the Lobster Factory, The Pinnacles and Lancelin sanddunes. It's a long day but its fun. The weather in Perth was terrible when I did this, so our whole day was made gloomy with rain and wind, but we made the most of it and still had an enjoyable time. The Pinnacles are really cool, as was the sandboarding, the only thing bringing it down was the weather.
Love the stops at Caversham and lobster shack, although the tour in the lobster factory could do a better. My family's talking about going back to Caversham when we next visit!! Love the pinnacles and the sand dunes. Kids had loads of fun!!
We took this tour on a Public Holiday - Good Friday. Started off on-time. Tour guide cum driver (a big man - can't recall his name) is pleasant and drove well throughout the day. While driving, he updated us on the attractions and histories along the way. 1st stop - Caversham Wildlife. Unless you're on your own or have the whole day, do spend more time walking around and see the animals. 2nd stop - Lobster Shed. Lunch. Had an educational tour around. 3rd stop - Pinnacles. Closer look and feel of the desert 'tombstones'. 4th stop - sandboarding at sand dunes! Fantanstic experience! Overall trip was worth the $$$! Would definitely recommend to others! - Ayu and Yati (Singapore)
An interesting place to visit, love the sand-boarding and falling trick with the bus
Quite a long journey on 4WD but comfortable. Played with kangaroos inside zoo as well as koala. Saw real wild kangaroos along the road
A long, fun day touring around western Australia. I thought there would be a bit more walking/exploring, but it's definitely more of a bus tour than a walking tour. Our guide was great, and despite being there by myself, I never felt awkward. A great way to see parts of Australia that you wouldn't if you stick close to the cities.
More time at Caversham, and cut out the lobster factory. Sandboarding and 4wd was fantastic!!
This was great fun. The driver was interesting and informative. The Pinnacles are amazing, the animals part is so-so, but the sand boarding was fun and I really enjoyed the scenery on this tour. The food was good and there was plenty of it. Might be nice to give people a taste of the lobster on the lunch stop as to buy 1/2 a lobster is too much food
