So here we are, on our 2nd day of adventure! And today we will be heading up to the Pinnacles Desert!
We left for our destination relatively early as it’s quite a long drive up. Thankfully we have our wonderful driver a.k.a. their auntie, who tirelessly drove throughout most of the trips. And also kudos to the other drivers too!
It was quite a long way up from Fremantle (2hr+) so we stopped by at the McDonald’s at Yanchep for some breakfast.
Nice big area with a cool indoor playground! The main thing is, it’s not crowded at all unlike in Singapore.
Little milkie and milo? Both of them gobbled up their food and couldn’t wait to go in and play!
It took me so long to get them to sit down so that I can take a picture of them together!
After resting for an hour or so, we continued our journey under the clear blue sky, literally.
Although it’s coming winter, the sun is still quite glaring so I suggest it’s best to have some shades or caps. And most importantly, SUNBLOCK!
Attraction – Pinnacles Desert
And then we finally reached our destination! Gosh, the sight was amazing! Just in case if you ain’t sure, there is an entrance fee though, by per car. You can look up the information over here.
And you don’t have to worry where to go for there is a designated ‘road’ and an area for tourists to park their vehicles.
For young children, do watchout for them as there are small pinnacles all around. And remember, try not to wear light colour clothing. Little milo’s white polar bear jacket became orangy after he fell down twice… Thankfully he never knocked into any rocks or bushes.
And yes, for some reasons, there are a lot of houseflies!
Captured as many photos as you can. Really, its a rare and beautiful sight!
The wind is cold but the sun is hot and glaring still. So again, sunblock. Don’t wear white shoes too.
And then that’s it. After taking tons of photos, and into the Discovery Centre, and eating an ice cream, I took one last amazing photo of the Pinnacles Desert and we proceeded for our lunch!
Restaurant – Lobster Shack
Only about 30 minutes drive from the Pinnacles Desert, we arrived at the Lobster Shack for our lunch. What are we going to eat? Lobster, of course!
It wasn’t some kind of fanciful restaurant. There’s an indoor area but was reserved for some tour groups and so we settled at the outside under some tentage.
It wasn’t that bad for such cooling weather but I am not so sure for other seasons. For now, it is perfect for me!
There wasn’t a lot of varieties but I guess it’s good enough since the main thing is to try their lobster. And so I ordered one lobster and one fish and chips.
Fantastic! I am not a fan of lobsters but this is really FRESH!
Milkie: And so is the fish! NICE! (Recall: she don’t eat fish back at home, not even fish and chips).
So, it’s thumbs up! And more thumbs up for LOBSTER SHACK! Oh right, the price is the price for lobster though. Don’t expect anything too cheap. But definitely worth it for that amount!
Shopping – Ocean Keys Shopping Centre
We didn’t spend much time in this shopping centre but nonetheless I noted it down because it is one of the nearest shopping centre with the big marts that opened till slightly later.
Neither did I take lots of photos because *cough* I was busy shopping. Oops. Oh well, but there’s definitely things to get here even if you ain’t here just cause you were passing by!
That was after when the marts were closing and we were really hungry.
See how deserted this whole place is? The shops closed real early so we will just have to adapt to this.
Restaurant – Nando’s
Luckily there is still a restaurant opened at 8pm+! The familiar and delicious Nando’s!
It was quite empty when we reached but they became so busy after 22 of us went in. Oops again for making them so busy when it’s quite close to closing time.
And because they weren’t ready for such a big group, we waited for a while. But the staffs were really friendly.
Of course, the food was also nice too! And that ended our 2nd day of our holiday.
