WHAT TO EXPECT

While the highlight of this small-group tour is the star-gazing, your experience starts well before the sun sets. You'll get picked up from Perth between 11:30 am and 2:00 pm (depending on the time of year) for the drive to Lancelin. Here you'll experience the thrill of sandboarding at one of Australia’s premier sandboarding destinations, the Lancelin Sand Dunes. You will be impressed by the pure white sand and be awestruck by the giant sand dunes that can be up to three storeys high. Make use of the custom made sand boards for flying down the dunes. It is also a great spot for photography.

 

During wildflower season, you'll also stop at Nilgen Lookout, a beautiful picnic spot overlooking the surrounding nature reserves and the Indian Ocean, for a short walk to see wildflowers.    

 

Next, learn about over 5000 native plants used by the Australian Aborigines for food and medicine. The tour stops at Hangover Bay near the Pinnacles Desert to show you some of the local plants that were used by the Aborigines when they lived off the land.

 

The last stop is The Pinnacles desert, a very unique Australian landscape. You'll get here late in the afternoon which is one of the best times to photograph the Pinnacles as the shadows create remarkable patterns and shapes that ripple over the desert sands. Once the sun sets, indulge in a delicious barbecue dinner under the stars on the observation deck. Sample fresh produce from Margaret River and the Swan Valley including the famous Western Australian wines

 

After dinner, it’s now time to slow down and unwind under the stars of the stunning outback night sky. There's a large computerised telescope and Astro Binoculars which will allow you to get a close-up view of the stars and some of the planets. You can even attach your smartphone to the telescope to take some stunning photos of the moon when it is visible. Using a laser pointer your tour guide will point out items of interest in the sky and you can hear stories of the Aboriginal Dream Time relating to the night sky. Look out for the Milky Way and see if you can spot the giant scorpion, the kangaroo or the emu in the sky. You may also see planets such as Saturn and Jupiter depending on the time of year and if you are lucky, you may get to make a wish upon a shooting star.
