Perth: Pinnacle Desert Sunset and Stargazing with Dinner

1. Perth: Pinnacle Desert Sunset and Stargazing with Dinner

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 11:00 PM.

What people are saying about Western Australia

Wow. What a fun day! I had a hotel pickup a block north of my actual hotel. The guides were super knowledgeable and helpful. The park we stopped at first allowed us to see a koala and many many kangaroos up close. It was amazing! Then we got to explore Pinnacles for a bit which was super cool. Cervantes the restaurant we stopped at had wonderfully friendly staff, great food too! I paid $20 extra to try their famous Rock Lobster and it was worth it! The export more rock lobster than anywhere else in the world so it’s a must try! Then we went back to Pinnacles parking lot for a star gazing experience! They taught us about everything, we saw Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and we saw several satellites! Then we had hot tea and a whole bunch of cookies! Drop off was at my hotel! What a fun day! I definitely recommend bringing lots of extra layers for when the sun starts to go down, not just a jacket. It gets very cold.

Really great experience. driver and guide both friendly and knowledgeable. pinnacles were amazing, nice stop to see the kangaroos and the stars looked great with no light pollution. Really good dinner as well.
