We were recommended to visit the Pinnacles by friends and hadn't really got any idea what to expect, so when we arrived at the sand dunes near the ocean and took the Pinnacle Drive we were absolutely asounded by the extraordinary sandstone formations. Thousands of stalagmite type rocks rising out of the sand, some 2-3m high. After driving through the... More

The Pinnacles near Cervantes, WA is a truly unique experience. Though being in a National Park it is not dog friendly & the only place for camping in the area is in the Caravan Park in Cervantes, which is Dog friendly. $35.00 per night. The Pinnacles themselves has a good 1.5km walking track, following posts with emu prints for directions.... More

A day trip to The Pinnacles is an easy trip from Perth and should not be missed. The new ocean road it great and gives you some hints of the spectacular coast line with the pure white sand. The pinnacles are in a national park and there is a $12 fee per car, you will not be disappointed given the... More

Marvellous place, where there is a self drive through the dunes with the Pinnacles. Sunset is great.

Was great to be able to drive through the pinnacles and stop to take pics when we wanted to. The little tourist souvenir shop was interesting as well as toilets very handy!

You take the drive out to the Pinnacles not expecting what your about to find. But it is truly an amazing spot, an example of nature I've never seen before. The rock formations are so sculpted and spread randomly over the landscape that you have to wonder if this has been done on purpose. Definitely stop in if your traveling... More

Entry by car costs $12 or $6 with concession. You then can opt for a 1.2 km walk or a 4 km drive around the pinnacles. The landscape is surreal with very yellow sand and then th limestone pinnacles standing on their own. It is a desert scape close to the ocean. Well worth the short drive from Cervantes to... More

We decided to drop in to Cervantes whilst staying at Lancelin and glad we did. While there we stopped off at the Nambung National Park to look at The Pinnacles. Entry was $12 per vehicle so a relatively small cost to enter. I have to say you get the feeling that you are on a Mars Landscape except that everything... More
