Your Day Tour
Travel through the Swan Valley to New Norcia, Australia’s only monastic town which is renowned for its Benedictine Abbey. Drive through the town and learn of the intriguing history and culture of the community. A little piece of Spain comes alive in this town, full of history, art and architecture.
From here enjoy our included fish and chips lunch at the historic New Norcia Hotel before heading to the Western Wildflower Farm for a brief talk about how wildflowers are dried and exported, then continue on to visit the iconic Pinnacles Desert. Rich in flowering plants, this is a great spot where vegetation blooms into flower during season. See the Pinnacles from the lookout over the Park or take a guided walk through these amazing spiers. These mystical limestone pillars make up one of Australia’s most unique landscapes, rising eerily out of the sand and reaching up to several metres tall. If time permits be sure to make a visit to the Pinnacle Desert Discovery Centre to discover even more about this natural wonder. (Wildflower viewing stops are made in season.)
