The sight of all these rocky spikes in sand was a fantastic sight. The visit to New Norcia concluded with an excellent fish and chip lunch.

A very interesting trip. David our driver did a great job.

A great day out. Our guide/driver, Paul, entertained us all day with commentary about the early settlers and local fauna and flora. New Norcia is interesting. No wildflowers but lunch at the wildflower centre was delicious. The Pinnacles are amazing. The drive was comfortable with interesting scenery all the way. Highly recommend.

We found all our tours great and enjoyed them very much. The Pinnacle desert is amazing and we also saw a wild emu!
• Submitted 21 Oct 2014
The entire day was very well organised and informative. The Pinnacles was well worth the trip.
• Submitted 13 Oct 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, however, the information on the website differed to the itinerary on the day. We were so close to Cervantes it seemed a shame not to drive there for a look even if the lobster lunch wasn't available! New Norcia was a revelation, the Pinnacles were great and the Visitors Centre there was impressive. In particular, the bus driver was very informative.

We had a wonderful time on this tour from start to finish. A very family oriented tour suitable for all age group. The driver/tour guide Tomas is professional and handled unforeseen circumstance well our coach air-con spoiled!!. The lunch at the New Norcia Hotel is awesome, tasty fish and chips. The wildflower trip could have been better if it's the right season to visit.
• Submitted 23 May 2018
Excellent tour that visited the unique Pinnacles Desert, allowed an insight into the history of the New Norcia monastic settlement, and included a visit to an Australian wildflower exporter farm with a well-informed driver. Only issue was the poor coach with no viable speaker system, an out-of-order toilet, no leg rests and at least one seat that reclined of its own accord. plus a dangerously high step at the exit.

Great day out. Coach comfortable and driver excellent. The unexpected morning tea a bonus and lunch excellent. I would have been happy to miss the wildflower farm to have more time in New Norcia and the Pinnacles.

The tour operators were great, it was fantastic seeing the Pinnacles!
• Submitted 19 Apr 2017
It was a nice trip, at New Norcia, will be better if the guide could allow 10 to 20 minutes more at the two churches she showed us. This could give us time to take some photos.

This is quite a long day with an early start. The Pinnacles are spectacular and well worth the drive. Our driver john was very knowledgeable and personable and passionate about the geological formations. New Norcia was brilliant but we really needed to spend more time there to properly see the museum. The local guide provided valuable insight to the town's background and ongoing changes today. Lunch was fine but the wild flower part of the trip lacked real content, as the flowers have passed blooming and so the farm served as a lunch stop and a visit to the gift shop. Given that it took additional time to get there, this wasn't best use of time. The stop at Cervantes to see the ocean brought some welcome relief from the coach. There are times on the trip when the journey can get to you as you pass miles of scrubland and wheat fields, which are very much the same - but it is worth it to see New Norcia and the desert.

Our informative and friendly bus driver-cum-tour guide Ian's commentary and service made the difference in our experience. New Norcia sounds more interesting than it was, while the wildflowers component was somewhat underwhelming. The Pinnacles were awesome, and I wish we had more time there.
• Submitted 29 Nov 2012
Fascinating trip, could have spent longer at New Norcia but because of distance to be travelled in day we had to cut short. Packed lunch was really good and Pinnacles were wonderful to see.
• Submitted 27 Mar 2012
I would love to go back and see it in full bloom! Would liked to have had a little more time at New Norcia! The dinner stop was terrible, the food was cold and greasy. The lunch provided by the bus company was excellent though!
• Submitted 07 Jan 2010
Good trip and long day. With it not being wildflower season in April another point of interest should be included. Great lobster lunch.
• Submitted 24 Apr 2009
The Abbey at New Norcia was really the highlight of the tour! It would have been great to have had more time there. The Pinnacles are also really impressive but make sure to properly hydrate, it is really hot and sandy out there!
• Submitted 24 Apr 2009
Trip was OK, but there is a lot of driving and its a long day. In my opinion, the Pinnacles are not that spectacular versus - say - the Stone Forest in Yunnan, China. If I had to choose between this trip and Wave Rock, I would prefer Wave Rock,
• Submitted 10 Dec 2017
The wildflower stop was a complete waste of time,dusty old expensive souvenirs,had to pay for coffe and no flowers to be seen except some boronia.Rubbish and boxes everywhere. Jeff the driver was fantastic,patient,amusing,informative.5 stars for Jeff

It was good but I felt that they could've shown more places
• Submitted 06 Aug 2013
New Norcia and Wildflowers may be good for older people as there's really nothing to see (a monastery and a place where they dry wildflowers) but Pinnacles are really nice and you can even meet a wild kangaroo in the neighbourhood.
• Submitted 07 Apr 2013
New Norcia is nice and Pinnacles Desert is amazing. However, the catered lunch could have been better. The food was cold packed. Chicken meat was cold and dry.The bread is pretty hard. And there were lots of houseflies flying around the Wildflowers shop that we stopover for lunch. Would suggest the trip planner to review/source for a better lunch venue and revise the food menu.
• Submitted 19 Sep 2012
the tour did not live up to the expectation in places. as the tour was running late our tour of the Abbey was rushed but still very interesting and I did enjoy the guides talk. the wildflower tour was quite misleading and I was under the impression that the wild flowers are in bloom October through November but all there was was a wee shop and a very rushed and not at all enthusiastic talk crammed into eight minutes. again the Pinnacles was the high light of the day but still running late the information centre was closing as we arrived On a high note the bus driver was informative and ran an interesting commentary!

It was Too Long of a day and New Nocsia was a waste of time. Too Hot @ Pinnacles, nothing to be done about the weather!!!!
