A wonderful natural attraction. We drove around, then parked the car and did the walk. Even though the walk was signposted, once or twice we looked around and wondered whether we were going in the right direction. The signs were quite faded, and one or two had the arrows pointing in the wrong direction, Whether this was done by vandals... More

Wonderful experience driving around and walking amongst the Pinnacles. The gold of the desert added to a magnificent natures' painting.

Marvelous natural limestone structures in the middle of nowhere in Nambung National Park. Some pillars are as high as 4 meters, formed millions years ago when sea receded and left seashell deposits in gold color sand dunes.Try to avoid going there during summer (Dec - Feb), you will be annoyed by bush flys and sweltering heat. Otherwise, it is a... More

The landscape of pinnacles was very surreal - like being on another planet. It is about a 10 minute drive from Cervantes.

Turquoise, sea-green and dark blue seas; white sandy beaches; speckled fish of all colours; bright purple coral amongst hunters green seaweed; and orange hues of desert with wind-blown limestone structures of cream, yellow, pink and orange stained markings in between green bushes spraying up from brown stems. Within kilometers of each other on the start of the Coral Coast you... More

The Pinnacles must be seen during the right time of day, for the dramatic lighting effects. Unfortunately if you arrive in mid day, it's not more than "nice"....especially after many hours in the car to get to them.

The Pinnacles are easily accessed from Cervantes or if travelling up the west coast. There is an $11 per vehicle entrance fee. The visitor centre was informative but a little disappointing in the displays. Visitors can walk and/or drive through the park. Apparently the best time for photos is just before sunset. Take some time to walk through the different... More

I had heard of the Pinnacles and saw pictures of them a few times. Last saturday I decided to take the family for a day trip to the Pinnacles. It was a 3 hour drive from my home in Canning Vale. The entry fee per car was $10 and we drove through the Pinnacles trail. We could stop at convenient... More

Unfortunately, we arrived just as the Visitor Centre was closing (4.30pm) but it turned out to be the best time for the Pinnacles themselves. The shadows just before sunset fall long on the yellow sand and transform the place entirely. My kids loved it.

I am intrigued by the formation of the pinnacles and when I saw the photos in the guidebook. I told my wife that we definitely have to visit it. We rented a car from Bayswater(the cheapest in Perth) and started the journey after breakfast at Northbridge(Chinatown). The guidebook said it would be a 1.5 hours drive but it took me... More
