The Pinnacles

Indian Ocean Drive
Relax throughout our Turquoise Coastal Experience as we make our way up and down the coast via the colourful Indian Ocean Drive, providing plenty of opportunity to take in some of the most amazing sights such as the ‘Field of Balgas’ within the Wanagarren Nature Reserve as well as the ‘Grand Turbines’ of the West Hills Wind Farm. If your lucky enough you may even see some of Australia’s favourite animals such as the Echidna, Emu and Wedge Tail Eagle.

Nilgen Lookout
Enjoy a leisurely walk up to Nilgen Lookout to admire the sweeping panoramic views of the gigantic sand dunes we explored that morning as well as picturesque views of the Indian Ocean. During Wildflower Season (Sept-Nov) we follow the Wildflower Walk Trail in search for Wildflowers.

Hi Chelle, I just wanted to write a quick msg to let you know how awesome it has been going on your group hikes. I have always wanted to do something in the outdoors which involved both weight loss and mental healing. I have slowly found something that has helped me establish who i am as a person as it has given me the clarity i been looking for, to find myself as a person. And I love myself for it! Thank you for creating such a great team environment for all fitness level, people that love to be one with nature, and for people that just need that time to find what they need 🙂 You rock!

I joined the New Moon walk tonight at the Zigzag and had a great time. A short enough walk to do not being fit but long enough to get a workout. Amazing scenery and the end of hot tea and singing bowls was lovely. Highly recommend as a doable experience that is affordable and not hard for a usually sedentary person to achieve. Chelle and Dave were great hosts that have great experience to offer.

I highly recommend the 1 day tour to Perth Waterfalls with Chelle at DownUnderDiscover. As a foreign it was a pleasure to met a local with such sound knowledge of WA nature and the outdoors experiences. I enjoyed and learned a lot on this tour and the waterfalls were spectaculars.The tour is very well thought, and runs smoothly through the day with a great attention. We have time to ask questions, enjoy the walks without rushing and spend a wonderful day. For sure I will come back for another hike/outdoors experience.

We had a wonderful morning on the recent Zig Zag Flora, Fauna & History Tour. There was an abundance of wildflowers to discover, learn about and photograph. Learning the history of the Zig Zag and early settlers was very interesting and gave us a new appreciation of the area. Our guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and provided a great morning tea. Thank you for an excellent event.

We had a beautiful evening walk with Chelle. The moon didn't quite make it through the clouds, but the energy was exquisite, and the guide, and company, lovely. Thoroughly recommend this experience, and I can't wait to try others, such as the New Moon walk.

Great walking tour in the hills. Loved the very knowledgeable Ken who walked us through the amazing flowers of the region. Highly recommended. Oooh and such a yummy lemon myrtle cake too.

- Trevor - 

The forest walk was amazing. I really enjoyed the meditation and connection exercises and the walk itself is very manageable. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes nature and walking!!

Mothers day Hike was for my daughter and I our first venture on to the Bibbulmun Track. From the start Chelle and her family crew made us feel very welcome. The Hike was relaxed and at a speed suitable for all ages .Chelle very informative about the trail and the surrounding plants and trees. Midway homemade scones and tea was a welcome break in the midst of beautiful tranquil surroundings. The mothers day flowers and chocolates at the end was also lovely surprise. We will definately be booking more hikes with Down Under Discoveries.

Fantastic hike, no pressure to rush. I absolutely loved the meditative forest immersion moment. Yummo handmade bushtucker morning tea was a real treat. The morning started off quite crisp and cool but brightened to a warm, clear day. Chelle, our guide is really knowledgeable but warm, approachable and has great people skills.When I can afford another hike, hopefully a night one, will definitely be choosing this lovely family run business.

Thanks Chelle at Down Under Discoveries, I had a really great time, learnt lots and didn't feel rushed or unsafe at any point! even with the snake trails �

Lovely group of people and I look forward to my next adventure! ��
