Well worth a trip to see these amazing natural sculptures that dot this national park near cervantes, Amazing drive through the track going through the park, we had rain so didnt gwt out to walk much, but seeing the ocean behind these features was quite amazing, and if sunset happened while you were there you would have amazing photos.

Absolutely amazing landscape views within a few hours drive from Perth. Located in Nambung National Park, it's well worth the trip. Make sure you bring your camera! And travel on to Cervantes - a fishing town and buy yourself some Southern Rock Lobster! Yum!

Magnificent structures in a vast area of dunes. The park has a good infrastructure and it's possible to walk or drive through the dunes. If you want to walk remember to take your water bottle Every point has a different view. Kangaroo tracks are present in many places but to see one depends on a little luck and time of... More

What an amazing place located 2-3 hours north of Perth. You can drive thru the park but walking certainly gives you more chance to admire the rock formations from up close. Amazing variety of shapes and sizes and background ocean views to boot. Information centre and good toilet facilities on site.

Stunning setting for these rock formations. Sunset and sunrise seem the best time to visit and undertake the short loop of this park. What made this visit memorable was the wildlife that we saw during the visit, kangaroos and Gullahs, alongside this natural wonder. The gift shop was well stocked with a range of locally produced craft and paintings. There... More

This was one of the things on our list to do on our WA trip and we were not disappointed. Well we were actually as we had overcast weather and no spectacular sunset shots but it was still amazing scenery. As we had brought a WA National Parks Pass we visited one afternoon and then came back the next morning... More

This was my first trip to the Pinnacles and it was better than I expected. We drove up from south of the river and took the relatively new Indian Ocean Rd for a pleasant 2.5 hour drive. On the way up we stopped at the beach and Lake Thetis for the stromatolites (worth stopping by to see this if you're... More

Even in a moon boot I could walk the trail here, which is well sign posted. There are ample warning signs about sticking to the trail and taking plenty of water - not necessarily a winter directive. Signage is excellent.
