What You Can Expect
A great day out. Our guide/driver, Paul, entertained us all day with commentary about the early settlers and local fauna and flora. New Norcia is interesting. No wildflowers but lunch at the wildflower centre was delicious. The Pinnacles are amazing. The drive was comfortable with interesting scenery all the way. Highly recommend.

We found all our tours great and enjoyed them very much. The Pinnacle desert is amazing and we also saw a wild emu!
The entire day was very well organised and informative. The Pinnacles was well worth the trip.
It was a nice trip, at New Norcia, will be better if the guide could allow 10 to 20 minutes more at the two churches she showed us. This could give us time to take some photos.
This is quite a long day with an early start. The Pinnacles are spectacular and well worth the drive. Our driver john was very knowledgeable and personable and passionate about the geological formations. New Norcia was brilliant but we really needed to spend more time there to properly see the museum. The local guide provided valuable insight to the town's background and ongoing changes today.
Lunch was fine but the wild flower part of the trip lacked real content, as the flowers have passed blooming and so the farm served as a lunch stop and a visit to the gift shop. Given that it took additional time to get there, this wasn't best use of time. The stop at Cervantes to see the ocean brought some welcome relief from the coach.
There are times on the trip when the journey can get to you as you pass miles of scrubland and wheat fields, which are very much the same - but it is worth it to see New Norcia and the desert.
Our informative and friendly bus driver-cum-tour guide Ian's commentary and service made the difference in our experience. New Norcia sounds more interesting than it was, while the wildflowers component was somewhat underwhelming. The Pinnacles were awesome, and I wish we had more time there.
Fascinating trip, could have spent longer at New Norcia but because of distance to be travelled in day we had to cut short. Packed lunch was really good and Pinnacles were wonderful to see.
