Spectacular land forms, definitely worth visiting. If you can stay over, try to make time at sunset or sunrise. There is an honesty box for after hours entry. Keep quiet to try and spot wildlife. Dress warmly in winter; have water in summer.

The pinnacles are just lovely drive from Perth if you want to explore some Australian nature and iconic spots. Pack a picnic and enjoy the day and indulge in the untouched nature unless a tourist bus is around

We stayed at Cervantes and went to see the Pinnacles but it was closed for the day due to the heavy rain.This was very disappointing. We then decided to go to Stockyard Gully Caves. If you own a 4WD and feel confident on sand then this is a place to visit. Not well sign posted but AMAZING. The cave is... More

This is a place to visit when in Perth! Millions years old Pinnacles are worth the tour. Combine it with sand dune 4x4 treks for fun

Unique place. Formations, at times, mind-blowing especially when one knows how they are formed. Would definitely recommend coming here to wile away either a morning or afternoon.

We drove from Perth to The Pinnacles for a day tour. This breath taking landscape really worth the long drive. We were handed the map at the entrance. We decided to start at the visitor center to understand the history and science behind it before we start to explore. The visitor center is well managed. Sufficient information were provided and...

How spooky are these rocks but how beautiful the colours here, the deep deep orange sands and rocks are remarkable. The light us particularly unusual along this coast line. Wonderful to just sit on the vwooden seat vand overlook the ocean....so tranquil.

If you happen to be driving up the coast of Western Australia, do yourself a favor and walk/drive through the pinnacles. From what I understand, it is a bunch of material for seashells that has remained after the ocean receded. The first time I saw them, I was breathless. Do yourself a favor and make sure you visit during sunrise/sunset.... More

Would advice to arrive in the morning, when there isn't much... More

About a two hour drive north from Perth, you come to the Pinnacles. It is a short drive in from the road and and then you can drive or walk through this amazing place. The stones seem to rise from no where out of the yellow sand. All the other sand around is white so the yellow is unusual. There... More
