Tons and tons of rock formations! The pinnacles desert was pretty cool because it was just so random! The fact that no one knows how they were formed is really interesting and I loved that you could get out of your car and walk among them.

The pinnacles were an impressive sight to behold and we had a great time capturing a range of photos. What surprised us though was how interesting the visitor centre was. It really showcased the desert ecosystem and gave you an insight into the abundance of life in the desert. See the info centre before your tour of the pinnacles and... More

as far as you look, there are the pinnacles surrounding you and the beaches and beautiful sea on one side. Plenty of walking tracks if you feeling adventurous (take plenty of water) or drive around the clearly marked tracks. It's accessible by 2 wheel drive but take it slowly. Well worth the drive.

I have been a number of times, but I haven't been for a while. It is unique, but to be honest, after you arrive and get over the initial 'wow' moment, it gets boring. It takes a few hours drive from Perth to get there and I recall 30mins is plenty of time to see it. It is near the... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, but what a place, these rock formations are so interestingly shaped and the contrast to the yellow sand and the surrounding area just is spectacular. We did the drive due to wet weather, but the walking tour would have been great to do. Not to be missed if you are in the region.

Off the beaten track this is a truly special display of petrified trees and is well worth a visit. Go at sunset for a dynamic photo opportunity.

On our first visit to Perth was amazed to visit The Pinnacles. What an amazing sight to visit. Although it was busy it was still possible to find some space alone to marvel at this natural wonder.

We come here quite often because we live 2 hours away. The Pinnacles are well worth a visit, over and over. They're beautiful at sunset, sunrise, and during the day. We love driving through them and getting out and walking everywhere. The big sand dunes are always a must as well, because the kids love climbing and jumping them. The... More
