  • The pinnacles in Nambung National Park are beautiful. At the entrance, you must pay the cashier or throw the entrance fee in a hillside spot, and specify also the license plate. Then go BB´s and you can drive through the National Park. We were at sunset there and this was a very special experience. There were many kangaroos on the road and you must drive slowly on the way back to the main road. The pinnacles are impressive and certainly worth the journey from Perth (approx. 2.5 hours).

  • This natural attraction is an easy day trip from Perth in the Nambung national park on the new Indian Ocean Drive and is just as easy self drive or by joining one of the excellent day tours available....  more »
  • Hired a car from Hertz as they have an after hours car return. Left Perth at 1pm with a group of friends including a visitor from England. Stopped at Lancelin to see the dunes and have a coffee break....  more »

  • Nice place for a day out see the desert and it's petrified forrest of old close to beach stay for sunset and the milky way on a clear night magical
  • It's perfect for a family trip, especially if you have kids. They're going to love it. The place os adequately equipped with facilities for convenience.
  • The Pinnacles here are great. Even though this area isn't that far from the coast, it feels much hotter than being by the coast only a few km's west, so prep for the heat in summer, with minimal shade at the Pinnacles.
  • Fantastic shapes. Pillars of stone like a frozen city overlooking the Indian Ocean Easy access. One way drive through has many parking stops to explore and picnic. Photographer's dream, particularly at sunset.
  • in the middle of a bush land, you will find a real desert with beautiful natural small cliffs.
