What You Can Expect

Pinnacles Desert, New Norcia and Wildflowers Day Tour from Perth

New Norcia, Wildflowers

Our morning journey takes us through historical Guildford and Swan Valley, past Perth's Pearce Air Force Base through the orange growing district of Bindoon to reach fascinating New Norcia. First settled in 1846 as a mission to the regions Aborigine, New Norcia is home to Australia's only Benedictine Abbey. A local guide escorts our drive through town explaining the intriguing history and culture of the community before visiting the local museum housing artifacts and priceless pieces, many being treasured gifts to the monastery from Popes and Royalty of Spain. We also visit a local produce shop for the chance to purchase Benedictine Community goods including olive oil, fruit wine, delicious New Norcia nut cake and fresh breads.

Continue to the lobster fishing town of Cervantes and visit the Pinnacles desert where you enjoy an easy paced walk through these mystical limestone pillars. Enjoy a buffet picnic lunch, then visit a local store featuring a range of dried wildflowers, before returning to Perth. Stops to view spring wildflowers are available from August to December only.

The entire day was very well organised and informative. The Pinnacles was well worth the trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, however, the information on the website differed to the itinerary on the day. We were so close to Cervantes it seemed a shame not to drive there for a look even if the lobster lunch wasn't available! New Norcia was a revelation, the Pinnacles were great and the Visitors Centre there was impressive. In particular, the bus driver was very informative.
