Full description
Heading north away from the city towards Yanchep National Park, you will make a quick comfort stop which will provide an opportunity to see the koalas and kangaroos. From here you will go up the coast towards the magical Pinnacle Desert to view the mystical limestone rock formations. Arriving here in the late afternoon avoids the crowds and heat, and allows for breathtaking sunsets. Experience the moon-like landscape come to life as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean and the moon rises. Once darkness falls, you will head to the fishing town of Cervantes for your included dinner in a traditional Western Australian tavern to soak up a real Australian atmosphere. Following dinner, you will head out into the night to experience the star-filled night sky. You will head back into the Pinnacle Desert to the observation deck to experience the tranquillity of the national park, and view the night sky without light pollution. Once you have had your fill of the enormous night sky, you will return to Perth arriving at approximately 11.00PM.

    - Great guide who provided very insightful info and history about the places. - Timing for each destination is well spaced out & you don’t feel like you are being rushed from 1 place to another - we have a fairly big group that day, the Guide may need an extra assistant to support him during the trip. Nevertheless, he was quite amazing as a 1-man show.

    A must do if you find yourself in Perth! Chris was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the unique place that is Western Australia but also astronomy and the night sky. He was so passionate about both it was contagious. The clouds had other plans for our sunset but the lighting in the desert before hand was breathtaking. We were lucky enough to get a clearing in time for stargazing with a fantastic view of the Southern Cross and Orion’s Belt. Highly recommend.

    If visiting Perth and you want to experience the vastness of Australia and a big sky full of stars, I couldn’t recommend more the Pinnacle Desert Sunset and Stargazing tour with a meal at a classic Australian country town pub. Luke the tour driver and guide was like an encyclopedia of knowledge everything WA, flora, fauna and the big sky. Passionate about WA and making sure that everyone had the best experience possible. Great value for money as you travel out to the outback from your hotel in Perth. Leaving the hustle and bustle to arrive at a landscape of unique and rare beauty. I found it an almost spiritual experience. I’m sure all the staff are great who run the tours but I would recommend you ask for Luke if possible.
