Obviously, I did most of the major research and info about Perth for months and I was tiring, excited and nervous at the same time. However, we only concluded our itinerary for day tours and car rental in Perth in last minute booking i.e. 1 week before departure. Phew!
We walked and welcome the cool breeze throughout the night but we couldn’t stay too long as cold windy weather makes us freezing. That called it a day on our 1st day sighting. We love our hot shower and warm bed in hotel later on!
We woke up at 6.00am in the next morning and all set for our 1st full day Pinnacles tour operated by Australian Pacific Touring (APT) at AUS155/pax. As Pinnacles Desert is a must see for visitors to Perth, the distance took us 245km one way from Perth requires full day to drive up and back allowing stopover in several places or so to look around. Pick up van came in promptly at 7.00am but the weather seemed not encouraging, drizzle with morning clouds along the journey. We still excited being heard so much about this unique geological formation going to be. We then meet up with other visitors somewhere in the City and transferred to a 25-seater 4WD truck.
Later, we traveled all the way to Cervantes, gateway to the Pinnacles. We had our terrible lunch in an isolated restaurant (last stop for drinks, food etc) where all foods served were pre-prepare. No wonder the food was so ‘cold and dry’ for us yet tasteless, perhaps the worst I ever had!
