In conjunction with our friends at Lumineers, a Pinnacles Desert and Stargazing tour that includes a bush tucker experience, a traditional Australian Barbeque Dinner and a sand surfing opportunity. Plus, of course, our 48 hour Perth & Kings Park bus ticket to use on a different day
An ancient landscape blessed with stunning sunsets and dark night skies full of stars.
This is the Pinnacles Desert, now an internationally renowned stargazing destination. This small group tour includes the use of the latest Astronomy Equipment to help you get the most out of your stargazing experience. We have a powerful computerised telescope and astro binoculars for your use so that you can see the planets and our moon in great detail. There is also the option to attach your smartphone to the telescope to take pictures of the moon.
The tour runs all year round, the night sky changes throughout the seasons and although it is a bit colder, autumn, winter and spring are some of the best times of the year to see the Milky Way and Planets in the Southern Hemisphere.
While you wait for the stars and planets to appear, enjoy a traditional Australian Barbeque Dinner with a glass of Swan Valley wine as you watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean.
We specialise in small group tours using our modern luxury Mini Buses which allows us to drive in to the middle of the Pinnacles Desert for your Stargazing Experience. This tour regularly sells out so please book early to avoid missing out.
The first stop on the tour is the Lancelin Bakery for a quick coffee/food & toilet stop before heading in to the sand dunes for sand boarding. We then follow the turquoise coast along Indian Ocean Drive doing a few stops along the way to see wildflowers in season as well as a guided walk to see native plants used the the Aborigines for food and medicine.
We end the tour with dinner under the stars in the Pinnacles desert where you will get the opportunity to get a close up look at the stars and planets through our telescope, try your hand at Astrophotography, learn about Aboriginal Astronomy and hear stories from the Aboriginal Dreamtime as they relate to the night sky.
The final part of the evening is a Sound Healing session by candelight in the desert. This ancient healing practice is the perfect way to slow down and connect with nature as you listen to a live performance of a didgeridoo and crystal sound healing bowl.
Tour around Perth and Kings Park on an iconic open top bus. No other tour vehicle can offer such a bird’s eye view of the top attractions. Take great photographs from the top deck - no glass window to spoil the view (Ticket valid for 48 hrs) Jump on board the bus at any of the stops at any of the times.
Your 48 hour Perth and Kings Park ticket can be used either before or after the stargazing experience.
