Explore Tours Perth, Best of Perth (Pinnacles and Swan Valley)
Duration: 10.5 hours (9.00am – 7.30pm) – Pickup time may be before 9am
Caversham Wildlife Park
This fun packed full day trip departs from Perth with pickups between 8.15am and 9.00am, with the first stop being Caversham Wildlife Park where Explorers get to feed Kangaroos and get up close to Koalas. You will also get to see a wide range of other animals, birds, and marsupials that are native to Australia. After an hour or so spent with these amazing Australian icons, we jump back on the Explorer bus and take a short drive to the beautiful Swan Valley.
Swan Valley Vineyard
The Swan Valley is well known for a wide range of internationally acclaimed vineyards, restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. On this tour, you will get a chance to visit one of the newest and best vineyards/breweries in the region and enjoy a lovely lunch with a glass of wine, beer or soft drink. Explorers choose their meal from a menu which is Muslim-friendly (Pork is prepared in the same kitchen).
After lunch we take a drive up the Indian Ocean Road to the Nambung National Park for a close look at the Pinnacles. The park itself covers an area of 17,487 hectares and provides a natural habitat for an extensive range of animals and bird life. Luckily for us, there is a modern discovery center which houses fascinating interpretative displays with details of the Pinnacles themselves as well as the flora and fauna of the park. Aboard the Explorer Bus, we will see the Pinnacles on a scenic drive through the park before setting off on foot for an easy paced walk through this eerie yet fascinating landscape, at which point you can take photos up close to the Pinnacles.
Sand Boarding down Sand Dunes
Back aboard the Explorer Bus we head south for an hour to finish off the day at the adventure-filled town of Lancelin. Here you can admire the extensive Lancelin sand dunes and for the more adventurous explorers perhaps try out Sandboarding using the sand boards provided (think Snowboarding but replace the snow with sand).
The Explorer Bus returns us back to Perth at around 7.30pm having experienced some of the best activities that the region has to offer.
