Lancelin and the Pinnacles

After deciding to leave Perth and head north, our first stop along the way was a place called Lancelin, where you can sandboard. It's is only about 90 minutes from Perth, and the town itself, although small, has places you can rent all your equipment (which it turns out is just a board!). We rented... Continue Reading →
