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.
Enjoyed the night under the stars, Having a BBQ dinner and seeing the stars and moon close up with the telescope. Saw a falling star. Nice photo at end of trip.
See the shooting stars and meeting the people. Gavin was amazing and knowledgeable and informative. I enjoyed the scenery and BBQ dinner. Well done
Gavin was very informative the scenery was beautiful dinner was fabulous it was cloudy so couldn’t see many stars a very worthwhile tour though
This was an awesome day trip! The guide was really knowledgeable about indigenous flora and fauna as well as the stars! Every part was fun and well worth it.
I had a great time on the tour. The tour guide Gavin was very knowledgeable and passionate about the giving clients a good experience and a great photo at the end of the night. Highly recommend.

Thanks Gav it was fab!
From Courtney Mooney and Ash
Loved it! Awesome service, stunning stargazing experience. Very informative tour and very knowledgeable guide.
Amazing trip . Telescopes to view the night sky after dark at the pinnacles. BBQ dinner with glass of wine under the stars
A very well-organized trip led by a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide (Gavin). The sand dunes in Lancelin were amazing and Hangover bay was beautiful. Upon reaching the Pinnacles, we were able to watch the sun set over the horizon, have a lovely dinner outside and watch the stars appear in the cloudless sky. Dec 21st was particularly special, as we were able to view the once-in-a-lifetime Great Conjunction through telescopes and binoculars provided by the tour company. For visitors and locals alike, I highly recommend this experience. Thank you Gavin for a safe and memorable day and for the photos!
Gavin was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the region. He pepared a great dinner for us in the midst of the desert as well. The sand boarding activity was fun. A day well spent!
Well worth the journey. Pinnacles were incredible and we were lucky enough to experience a clear, starry night. Thank you Mick
correct pickup, 3 interesting stops (wine-chocolate and coffee) , a scenic sight at the coast ans then the visit at the pinnacles : beautifull; our driver let an hour free for visit and photo's and prepared a very good BBQ with feresh salad, saussages in in iconic spot : we brougt for u 2 telescopes, binoculars for every-one and so we could enjou the amazing stargazing !!! really wonderfull; with all the help and knowledge from our gide : thank you
Blessed with great weather and clear sky during our visit to the Pinnacles from Sunset till dusk! Very experienced and knowledgeable guide who took great care of us, brought all the equipment and gadgets, allowing us to see plants and constellations via telescope and binoculars.
Wished we had more time slide off the sand dunes but still really contented with this tour :)
Fantastic great value tour from Perth to the breathtaking Pinnacles National Park with many interesting and enjoyable stops en route.
This tour company did everything to assist us and provided a wonderful experience with a trip to the swan valley and the Lancelin Sand dunes as well as nearly sunset visit to Hangover Bay.
The visit to the Pinnacles has been on our bucket list for about 30+ years and they did not disappoint
but to have a BBQ there just on dusk with a beautiful sunset thrown in was brilliant. After we had eaten Gavin opened up his telescope the heavens were available to be seen and admired.
We would like to thank Nat and Gavin for providing us with a big tick on our bucket list.
Coming from the UK the night before was a bit of a challenge with the jetlag but it was soooooo worth it! Gav knew it all. Was like our very own crocodile Dundee. Lol. He was driving, making us a barbeque dinner, all the knowledge about the plants and wildlife and the telescopes and binoculars that are provided. All round a great experience. We didn't have the best night with the weather but I still managed to get some amazing shots with his plan B,C,D just incase. Everything was well organised I dont think it could have been any better.
We got picked up taken up to a chocolate place and winery. Then onto a honey shop. All were great. We then got to the pinnacles, just fantastic. Gavin our guide cooked us a bbq and set up for star gazing. Gavin gave lots of useful information along the way. I don’t think this is a trip for young children as they would be bored
Fantastic tour, well organised with lots of things to see and do. Gavin was very knowledgeable, giving us little bits of information about the area, plants and wildlife. Highly recommend this tour, great value for money.
This was the highlight of our short holiday in Perth. Value for money tour compared to a few others. Highlights would be Swan Valley, Lacelin Sand Dunes and finally the Pinnacles, which is really an awesome experience not to be missed. Dinner in the serene desert was unique, and moon and star-gazing was a bonus!
Gavin our driver / guide was very good indeed. He drove us to the various places smoothly and safely (despite all of us suffering from an extremely noisy child on the tour). Brought boards for us to sandboard at the dunes, showed us some wild flora and fauna, and then cooked a nice simple dinner and set the telescopes up for us to look at the moon, stars and a couple of planets. An activity filled day trip worth the time and money!
Haven't seen such bright awesome moon and stars through the telescope in pinnacle. It was the merit of this tour. The dinner was definitely nice.
Professional and comitted guide
A fantastic experience I reccomend to all going to Perth WA to put up one day for this
This tour is private with different activities compared to other standard tours in Perth. Well organised, convenient pick up/drop off, good value for money. Dinner was simple but lovely. Gavin was a little quite but very friendly. Try not to talk or talk softly during stargazing. I had three people in my group who wouldn’t stop talking loudly the entire time and it was very disturbing. We didn’t do the Gallery stop and Astrophotography.
