#2 of 7 in Things to do in Cervantes
Discover the diverse natural world of Nambung National Park, which also contains the otherworldly landscapes of the famous Pinnacles Desert. The park’s informative desert discovery center narrates the story of the popular Pinnacles, weathered limestone formations rising out of the yellow sands, which formed nearly 30,000 years ago. Also featured are several educational displays of the park’s remarkable biodiversity. The park is noted for its many pristine white beaches, where you can swim, snorkel, and surf. You can join a deep-sea fishing expedition, cruise along the offshore islands to see dolphins and sea lions, or visit Kangaroo Point, where mobs of kangaroos gather each day at dusk.

    Definitely worth a visit. The Pinnacles have been sculptured by acidic ground water beneath the dunes. Once pinnacles are exposed by shifting sands they are further sculpted by wind, rain and sun. Fee...  more »

    The famous pinnacles are in Nambung National Park. The pinnacles are spectacular limestone formations that dominate the landscape and are similar to elephants, Lake cops, turtles or a church. Weather permitting, the contrast of the pinnacles to the yellow sand, blue ocean and green plants is breathtaking. Who is in Perth, should visit the National Park despite the distance about 200 km.

  • Stone formations are really a great wonder. Great place to go with the family and appreciate God's masterpiece. Its a shame some people would still climb on rocks and dont do their share to preserve the place.
  • Well run National Park, we were able use our Annual Pass to get in which saves us the Entry Fee. We were able to learn about The Pinnacles at the Visitor Centre. Worth the drive through to explore these extrainadonary structures.
  • Close enough to Perth for a day trip, and spectacular scenery. I ran along the scenic drive and also did some off-trail exploration to take in more of the scenery. It's not a big area, but very pretty and special and worth the trip!
  • The place is beautiful during the day but after the sunset is even more magical... If you are passionate about photography it's the perfect place to get the best shots 😊
  • The Pinnacles were amazing. Great place to see.
