The Pinnacles are simply like nothing you have ever seen in your life, they are all shapes and sizes, you are able to drive through them and walk amongst them, very peaceful place. It will take you about two – three hours’ drive north from Perth on the Ocean Highway to reach them, but it is worth the drive.

The day we went to see The Pinnacles the poor lady in the ticket box had a swarm of bees hanging around the window. After paying we where informed we couldn't drive to Pinnacles with our camper on. We where told to unhitch n leave it in the car park or we could just walk to the Pinnacles. It was... More

Worth doing both the Desert walk and the Drive. Weird landscape and geologists can't decide how it was formed. The hand of the Divine is here...

These pillars are worth a visit! The fact scientists arent 100% sure why the structures are there makes them even more fashinating.

I went with Adams Coach Tour. 640kms return trip. Firstly stopping at Caversham Wildlife Centre. Cervantes for lunch was great and worth the trip to see the other side of Australia. Lobster lunch was very good for a $15 upgrade (otherwise $35). Pinnacles was very interesting and had a very good walk around. Sand boarding after this and 4 WD.... More

The pinnacles is such a unique place. Since it is part of a national park the entrance fee is reasonable or if you have a national parks pass it is included as part of that. A road winds through the pinnacles making it accessible to everyone. There are plenty of places were you can pull off and get a closer... More

It's a mysterious and, I think, very beautiful place. Very popular place to visit so it can be difficult sometimes to get a decent photo with no people wandering around in it. Though if you time it between bus tours then you should be ok. We went there extremely early in the morning - still dark in fact- and waited... More

It is hard to describe the wonder and sheer beauty of driving around the pinnacles. There are viewing platforms where you can stop and take it all in. it is very well designed for the tourist. It is definitely something to be viewed to believe and best viewed in a car and/or tourist bus.

For those who love nature and the outdoors, you shouldn't miss this when in Perth area. 2 suggestions: 1.) Rent a car. I see others exploring this site by foot, it will take huge chunk of your time. Best to go by car. 2.) Go few hours before sunset. We were there around 1-3pm and the sun scorched us all... More

I'm an amateur+ photographer and this place is amazing if you like strange landscapes. Although I would recommend visiting in the early mornings or late afternoons. One will make more interesting pictures because of the warmer light and shade, that is created by the pinnacles. Another reason might be that it is less hot during these times of day. The... More
