Summer has arrived in Perth and we're all looking for time to enjoy the lovely weather. Not far from Perth is the Turquoise Coast which offers so many different holiday experiences and short or long stays.
What to see and do all depends on your interests; for the adventurous, there is sandboarding, buggy rides and skydiving. For the rest of us normal folk that, don’t like jumping out of planes 😊, there are plenty of other options like the Pinnacles, sea lion tours, walks (art, historical or nature), swims, tours and meals to be enjoyed.
The weather is generally mild with the summer months reaching between 27 and 30 degrees Celcius during the day and only dropping to between 17 and 21 degrees at night. Rain is rare during summer, so it makes the area a very comfortable holiday destination.
The towns on the Turquoise Coast can be travelled to by bus from Perth heading north, or from as far as Broome heading south. Time to check out what’s available and make your travel plans to enjoy the lovely weather the region is having.
And talking about Perth, due to maintenance works at the train station, our departure point has moved to the Beaufort Street Tourist Bus Stop which is near the corner of Beaufort Street and the James Street Mall. This is still only a short walking distance from Perth City Train Station.

Cervantes is the gateway to Western Australia's Pinnacles Desert and the beginning of Australia's Coral Coast region.
The beaches are perfect for swimming, surfing, water sports, snorkelling and fishing.
No visit to Cervantes is complete until you have seen The Pinnacles located in Nambung National Park. The desert area is spotted with many ancient rock pillars, set among ever moving sand dunes. If you've previously seen them during the day, then take a night tour experience instead.
Take the time to stroll around town and locate all the art sculptures or look at the Thrombolites at Lake Thetis.

As with many coastal towns along the WA coast, water sport enthusiasts love Greenhead and Leeman. In Green Head, when that sea breeze hits, surfers hit the water for the windsurfing.

Seagrass meadows help to create a healthy and spectacular marine life.
