A very enjoyable day and Brendan is a wealth of information sharing above and beyond whats required I'm sure.

Be careful when booking this tour that you know exactly what it involves. We had very little time at The Pinnacles, which should h...ave been the highlight of the trip and no time to look around the visitor centre. New Norcia was very interesting and the lunch was excellent but we did spend a disproportionate amount of time there. It was not the picnic lunch as described for the trip but the fish and chips were excellent at the hotel at the Monastery, if a little early in the day. The Wild Flower Farm visit was also rushed, with no time to watch the explanatory video or have a cup of tea. There was bottled water on the bus but no other drinks were supplied, not even with lunch. With lunch so early in the day, guests should be advised to bring a snack, or better still, please supply one for later in the day. Our guide was good but I think The Pinnacles should be a bigger focus for this trip. more

this was a great trip; the highlight was New Norcia, and the Pinnacles amasing. The lunch stop was disappointing and the salads to...o big. A great well informed driver more
