Itinerary

En Route

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 before stopping for morning tea.

New Norcia Museum and Art Gallery

A little piece of Spain comes alive in this town, full of history, art and architecture. The town’s main attraction is the museum and art gallery. In the museum you will find extraordinary artefacts dating back to when New Norcia was an Aboriginal mission, a hub for farming and a diverse town for education and culture.

Abbey Church and St Gertrude’s College

The Abbey Church is home to one of only two large Moser organs, originally crafted in Germany, this organ was imported to Australia in the 1920’s. Visit St Gertrude’s College, a grand gothic style building which was originally built as a girls boarding school and opened in 1908. Afterwards, visit a produce shop for the chance to purchase Benedictine Community goods including olive oil, fruit, wine, New Norcia nut cake and breads.

Western Wildflower Farm

From here we visit the Western Wildflower Farm for a brief talk about how wildflowers are dried and exported. Here enjoy our gourmet bento box style picnic lunch and 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. (Wildflower viewing stops are made in season.)

Pinnacles Desert

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. See the Pinnacles from the lookout over the Park or take a guided walk through these amazing spiers. If time permits be sure to make a visit to the Pinnacle Desert Discovery Centre to discover even more about these natural wonders.
