We took a 2+ hour drive up from Perth. Very interesting and incredible place with overwhelming nature staring right at you. There is a Discovery Centre on-site which gives you a lot of information regarding the Pinnacles and the formation of it. There are also information on the different types of wildlife living in it. Best to visit the centre... More

This is a fantastic place to go to if you are amazed by the many natural wonders of the world. This is surely one of them. Spread over a huge area in the middle of a national park you will find these stone structures and I am sure amazed by them. The propped up out of nowhere and will be... More

Nice environment, different, but don't expect extraordinary. One day trip from Perth if you are stuck in the city. Early in the morning or late in the evening the best moments for pictures. Avoid central hours and summer or you'll get fried!!

With so much natural beauty in WA it is easy to get saturated with everything you see. The desert looks amazing and the contrast of the yellow sand to white to green bush and then the blue sea makes for some great pictures. You are allowed to wonder round them either by car or foot. Choose foot it is much... More

A road winds through a huge desert filled with thousands of rock formations. They look really eerie sticking up out of the desert landscape, and I imagine sunset and sunrise would be lovely (too overcast when I was there). Even if you drive there are plenty of places to stop the car so you can get out and walk around.... More

Something worth seeing, do not miss it. You wont see anything like this elsewhere, and there is so many of them. We were lucky enough to see a Goanna while we visited, great outback experience for those who haven't seen it before. Loved it.

We travelled through normal Aussie sandy bush, turned into the national park, paid our $6.00 per car (Pens) turned the corner and could not believe our eyes!______________ there before us is something out of a science fiction movie, we have never seen anything like it and why just this spot. We had stayed at The Vines so it was only... More

Lot bigger area than I originally thought. Had a great drive around the one way track and stopped many times to admire the ancient weathered structures. Fabulous to see the sun set as the shadows lengthened and the colors changed. Easy drive for Cervantes.

We tried to break the journey up from Perth by stopping at Guilderton, Lancelin & Cervantes. Only Guilderton was worth a stop. Lancelin & Cervantes proved to be pretty ordinary towns, especially on a dull day. However, The Pinnacles are certainly worth a visit. The entrance into the park is just $12 per car, which includes entry into the interesting... More
