The top 7 reasons why you should day trip to Cervantes
It might be a case of bias, but we truly believe that Cervantes is one of the most amazing places in our neck of the woods. Often passed by on the way up north, Cervantes is a truly unique location in the world and is home to some of the most quintessentially Australian activities. We’ve chosen the top seven reasons why you should take part in a Cervantes day trip, but feel free to add your own!
1. The history of the Earth
A trip to the beginnings of our world is quite simple when you travel to Cervantes. The stromatolites at Lake Thetis are the oldest known living organisms in the world. Take a scenic walk around the lake and you will be in awe of the vastness of it. There are a number of sign posts that will fill you in on the historical and natural wonder of the area.
2. Close enough!
Given that Western Australia is a vast expanse of land, getting anywhere can seem to take a long time. But Cervantes is a little gem that is only two and a half hours away from the metro area. If you wanted to, you could take a day trip to our little town, or you could make it an overnight trip. There is plenty to explore in the area if you did want to make it a weekend or a long weekend trip, with a quick drive back to the city when it is time to go home.
3. Natural wonders
The Pinnacles are a fantastic destination for all travellers to Western Australia. These monolithic structures are the perfect way to explore the history of WA. The most fantastic time to visit the pinnacles is sunrise or sunset.
4. Amazing wildlife
Particularly during wildflower season, Cervantes and its surrounds spring to life with amazing wildlife. Throughout the year, there are also a number of other amazing natural wonders for you to witness.
5. Lobster Shack
Of course, when you are in town, you must visit us at Lobster Shack for the ultimate Cervantes experience. Whether it’s a lobster lunch, a tour of the factory, or both, there are so many things for you to do. Our team at the Lobster Shack can help you experience the best that Cervantes has to offer. Cervantes is a town built on rock lobster, and we have the up-close-and-personal tour.
6. Old world charm
Need some R&R? Ready to switch off from the stresses of modern life? Cervantes has that old-world charm that encourages you to truly unplug from the world and just take in the sights.
7. Something for everyone
Cervantes caters to everyone from the youngest tykes, to the grey nomads searching for their next place to explore. There truly is something for everyone in the town. Also, there are options for a number of different interests. Whether you’re in town for the great grub, or you’re here to fish off the jetty, there is something for everyone in Cervantes.
So, what are you waiting for? Pack the car, attach the trailer, and start the short drive up to our little slice of paradise nestled on the Western Australian coast.
