Our "Taste of Adventure" Tours provide you with a variety of sightseeing, activity, participation, relaxation, yummy food and loads of laughter!

 

Itinerary:


Begin your fun-filled day with a warm welcome and introduction from one of Western Australia’s most enthusiastic and experienced tour guides. Our first stop is Trigg Beach where we join the worldly renowned drummer and percussionist Freddy Poncin for a 1 hour workshop in African Djembe overlooking the beautiful west coast. Learn drumming techniques from West Africa overlooking the beach, followed by morning tea and traditional bush tucker tastings. A great way to start the day.

 

Back on the bus we head for Yanchep National Park, home to kangaroos, pink and grey galahs, lorikeets, kookaburras, koalas and many more native Australian animals. Here we visit the Aboriginal Wangi Mia ‘The Talking Place’ and enjoy an informative introduction into the oldest surviving culture on Earth. Learn about Aboriginal Art at the ‘Meeting Place’ and visit the Yorga Mia ‘The Women’s Place’. A unique experience not to be missed.  

 

Next we travel along the Indian Ocean Road and visit the coastal town of Cervantes to relax on the beach, go for a stroll or a swim and then enjoy a delicious picnic lunch.

 

We continue our day and visit the magnificent Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park. Here your guide will take you for a short walk amongst the unique and interestingly-shaped ‘’Pinnacles”, explain their creation and Aboriginal Dreamtime Story and ensure you get plenty of time to enjoy the serenity.

 

After a visit to the Pinnacles Discovery Centre it is time for the drive home and reflect on your magical day, but….before we arrive back in ‘civilization’ we stop at one of the many fruit & veg stalls in Gingin to finish the day with some fresh and sweet fruit straight from the farm (time allowing).  A great day out.
