Our morning journey takes us through historical Guildford and Swan Valley, past Perth's Pearce Air Force Base through the orange growing district of Bindoon to reach fascinating New Norcia. First settled in 1846 as a mission to the regions Aborigine, New Norcia is home to Australia's only Benedictine Abbey. A local guide escorts our drive through town explaining the intriguing history and culture of the community before visiting the local museum housing artifacts and priceless pieces, many being treasured gifts to the monastery from Popes and Royalty of Spain. We also visit a local produce shop for the chance to purchase Benedictine Community goods including olive oil, fruit wine, delicious New Norcia nut cake and fresh breads.

Continue to the lobster fishing town of Cervantes and visit the Pinnacles desert where you enjoy an easy paced walk through these mystical limestone pillars. Enjoy a buffet picnic lunch, then visit a local store featuring a range of dried wildflowers, before returning to Perth. Stops to view spring wildflowers are available from August to December only.

We found all our tours great and enjoyed them very much. The Pinnacle desert is amazing and we also saw a wild emu!
