Perth Trip Recap (11)

Day 11 - Caversham Wildlife Park / Pinnacles / Lancelin 

We joined a day tour with Adventure Tours, which is really operated by Pinnacle Tours, just AUD40 cheaper. (Don't ask me why) It's a fantastic tour and I would highly recommend them.  See detailed itinerary here.  If you have the YHA (Youth Hostel Association) card, you also get an AUD10 discount!

We started off the day with a private tour at the Caversham Wildlife Park, where we got a private tour and saw the native Aussie animals up close - koalas, kangaroos, and a wombat!  so cute *o*  (During our research, most locals recommended Caversham over the Perth Zoo too)

other than emu, we saw everything else + more
hedwig's friends
koala sleeps 20 hours a day... 
they claim it's the eucalyptus
luckily this one isn't sleeping...
koala: "DND"
kangaroo: "feed me"
it's the "feed me" look again!
so many!!!

that's right, they are marsupials!

i think they kinda look alike :P
Then we went and visited a lobster farm in Cervantes and ate lunch there (you can buy a half lobster to go with your lunch for AUD10-AUD15 extra).

they actually knew where Macau is!!!
WA rock lobster
lunch buffet (included in tour)
my half lobster
After lunch, we head out to the Pinnacles in the Nambung National Park.  It was seriously hot out there so we just took a lot of pictures in the main area and didn't do the looped walk.  (We didn't have enough time anyway.)

*the color is different because i was messing with the built-in filters in my camera...

Finally, we headed to Lancelin and tried sand boarding.  It was really fun but make sure you soak yourself in bug spray... I got feasted by the sand flies there... it was really awful... 


my sand flies bites - and this is 2 days later... -.-|||
Joining a tour is great because I am exhausted so I pretty much slept the whole way back in the car... glad neither of us has to drive today :)
