The Pinnacles, Cervantes

4.6
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Cervantes
Contained within the Nambung National Park, The Pinnacles present an eerie landscape of limestone pillars rising from the sand about 100 km (62 mi) north of Perth. Largely unexplored until the 1960s, this area now attracts over 250,000 tourists per year. Recent developments include a visitor center, offering a brief educational lesson about these ancient stones created from seashells in an earlier epoch rich in marine life. Time your visit for early morning or late afternoon, when the play of light brings out the colors of the stones, and the extended shadows of the formations deliver a contrast highlighting their features. Emus and kangaroos, which make their permanent home at this park, are also more likely to be spotted in the early morning hours.

    Highly recommend the walks which give a special impression of the area. Also do not miss the North Spur where you can be by yourself in the desert ( unless everyone follows my advice!).  more »

    Great to drive your own vehicle next to the pinnacles. Unfortunately I was in a day when the weather was not idyllic. Time spent in the Park 2 hours.

    Look on Internet and other tourist attractions that personally, I went. National Park entrance fee needed for $ 13. In the Park can take pictures, walk while one-way parked in the middle. I didn't just look at the pictures is the Park is a very large, very impressive. We did two laps. We have seen brutanrizzard on the way. Worth going a little bit away from Perth.
