The Basics

Most day tours combine a visit to the 35,000-year-old limestone formations with stops at other popular attractions in the area, making it easy to heed the siren call of nearby dunes, white-sand beaches, and even a lobster farm. Meanwhile, nature lovers can catch sight of kangaroos, koalas, and wombats on tours that stop at Caversham Wildlife Park and Yanchep National Park, while adventurers can explore the Lancelin sand dunes via 4WD vehicle or sand board.

Great experience in WA
Highlight was seeing the pinnacles at sunset and sandboarding on the dunes- a great experience not far outside Perth. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and approachable and the pace was appropriate for the places that we saw. Highly recommend

Walking around the Pinnacles is amazing. We had a great time the entire tour. Gavin our driver and tour guide did a fantastic job given the unpredictable weather we had during the tour. Comfortable ride and delicious dinner.

Pinnacles Desert, Koalas and Sandboarding 4WD Day Tour from Perth
An absolutely fantastic day out, we started off by feeding Kangeroo's, which the children loved, then onto the dunes for a thrilling 4WD truck drive and sand boarding. After that we headed to the Lobster Shack (go for the Lobster up-grade it's delicious and well worth it) finally off the Pinacles, which is a mind boggling must see, before hedaing back to Perth. The Adam's guys were really great! It's quite a long day so be prepared to be a bit exhausted by the end.

When to Get There

The best time to visit is spring (September to October) when Western Australia's native wildflowers paint the desert with vibrant colors. Book a sunset tour to see a light show across the Pinnacles, or maximize your time by heading out early in the morning; you'll want the extra time to explore the many parks and beaches along the way.

Show all

Although the Pinnacles Desert is situated just a few hours outside of Perth, the capital of Western Australia has plenty to offer the first-time or return visitor. From the parks and gardens to the endless beaches, take in sights such as Elizabeth Quay and the Swan Valley wineries independently or on locally-led tours of this diverse city and beyond.
