Kandu Holidays will pick you up at 8.30am to take you 90 minutes north east of Perth to Australia’s only monastic town. The town has been home to a community of Benedictine Monks since the first missionaries arrived from Spain in 1846.

Kandu Holidays will pick you up at 8am to take you south east for approximately four hours to the town of Hyden.
Hyden is home to one of Western Australia’s most amazing natural land formation being Wave Rock, formed approximately 2,700 million years ago. It is a giant surf wave of multicoloured granite which looks like it is about to crash onto the bush below.
Other attractions you’ll visit include Hippos Yawn, another rock formation which has an uncanny resemblance to a yawning hippo, Mulka cave and salt lake. Along the way you’ll also stop in Corrigin and visit the dog cemetery as well as the open air museum made up of old machinery scrap.
The next day you’ll return to Perth via Western Australia’s oldest inland town of York. Here you have the opportunity to visit the Courthouse Complex, York Mill Gallery, the York Motor Museum Mount Brown Lookout and Swing Bridge.
Lunch and dinner is at your expense.

The accommodation is a highlight of this tour and is in a beautiful four bedroom two bathroom timber and limestone chalet nestled amongst the trees in Denmark. (Subject to availability.) Motel style accommodation can also be arranged for the full tour group if shared facilities are not desirable.
This area of the south-west is by far Kandu’s favourite. Attractions they visit include: Monkey Rock (subject to conditions), with panoramic views of the area, Elephant Cove, Greens Pool, Walpole’s Tree Top Walk, Bartholomews Meadery and the Alpaca Farm.
The next day they’ll head to Albany to take in the sights and more amazing photos at The Gap and Natural Bridge, the Brig Amity and Whaleworld. The pace on all tours is leisurely with no early morning starts (unless required); each day ends with plenty of time for a drink and a rest before dinner.

The ancient limestone pillars which are found there, range in height up to five metres and are randomly scattered in this particular area of vast, yellow, rippled sand dunes. The pillars were formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago after the sea receded, leaving behind deposits of sea shells. As time passed the wind removed the surrounding sand leaving the pillars that remain today.
