I really enjoyed the Pinnacles trip, it is a long day but well worth it. The days itinerary is well documented when you book so there should be no surprises. My only concern with the Wildlife Park is that it does mainly cater for overseas tourists, being an interstate Aussie visitor i have seen kangaroos, koalas and wombats many times. Maybe a walk around other parts of the park could be provided.

Our drivers were very good and informative. I upgraded to a lobster lunch in Cervantes at the Lobster Shack and it was well worth it.

The Pinnacles are truly amazing and very photogenic. The sand dunes at Lancelin are beautiful and even though i didnt participate in the sand boarding it was fun watching. Unfortunately, the 4WD bus did breakdown on the dunes, however everyone stayed calm and we didnt have to wait long for another bus. It did not put a damper on the day. We even got to see the super blood blue moon from the bus on the way home!.

I would certainly recommend this day tour from Perth.

The day was very hot and we were not offerered bottled water until after two hours, which they had all the time. Suggest that they give one bottle of water for each passenger from start at least on a hot day.
Otherwise the service was fine, the visit at Caversham was a rush, the sandboarding so so. The highlight was the Pinnacles, but not to recommend on a hot day :
I liked the experience though, but would not do this a second time.

Very various and impressive full day tour in a middle sized tour bus, specialy adapted to drive through the sand dunes. We startet by a lovely photo shooting in the Caversham Wildlife Park Koalas, Wombat, then an instructive self-guided tour at the Lobster Shack with fish-lunch, amazing walk through the Pinnacles Desert and finally the absolutly impressive drive in the sand dunes near Lancelin with the funy and crazy sandboarding. Great guide and we got good and a lot of informations. Everywhere we had enough time, no need to hurry. Don't miss!!

The Pinnacles Desert is simply amazing, and the highlight of the tour is the ride on the 4WD on the beautiful white sand dunes!
Sandboarding on the white sand dunes is a lot of fun too, definitely worth while to go on this tour.

Beautiful sceneries at Pinnacles. Much fun on the rides and sandboarding. Thumbs up for Luke, our wonderful Guide! Cheers. :

I really enjoyed this tour it was an interesting drive up and our driver was knowledgeable.

However, I felt that 45 mins at the Pinnacles was not really long enough. There was the option of a walk - but it needed at least 1 hour 15 mins. The Pinnacles area was really amazing and worth the long drive.

I would rather have skipped the Zoo section - which I thought was fine for children - but I am not a fan of the whole have your photo taken with an animal approach. It was a 30 mins whizz round - which I'd rather have spent at the Pinnacles.

Whilst our fish and chip lunch was very good - despite the card system - some people who had ordered lobster didn't get their meal at the right time - which delayed our departure to the Pinnacles. This was not the fault of the driver/guide but of the restaurant.

I really enjoyed the sand dune 4WD experience as did my fellow passengers!
And I thoroughly enjoyed the whole sand-boarding experience - which was guided by our 4WD driver and everyone negotiated the dunes safely.

A good day out

really fun. Experienced tour guide with detailed commentary and he is very knowledgeable and friendly too. Although the visiting of Caversham Wildlife Park is a bit quick and not much free time you will get. You can still take photo shots with some animals there. but treasure the rare photo taking chance, only allows 1-2 shots The lobster comes with chips and they are tasty. Sandboarding is super fun, play as much as you can while taking pictures at the background.
