Our first stop is at Yanchep National Park for a look at some cuddly Koalas. Depending on the weather conditions, we will either visit the Caves at Yancep Park, or head to Lancelin and experience the rush of Sandboarding down breathtaking dunes. After lunch it is off to our overnight accommodation at Cervantes (dorms) where there is time to chill out or walk down to the ocean for a swim and maybe see some of the local Sea lions swimming close to shore. Then it’s off to the famous Nambung National Park to see the world famous Pinnacles at Sunset, the best time to see them, and there might even be a Full Moon.
