We visited the Pinnacle in 2012 and loved exploring the cliffs and looking at the waterfall. We were so sad to return in 2016 only to see an incredibly ugly fence has been put up along the cliff.

At first I wondered how a huge rock would be an attraction, but when you get there it all makes sense. Great view and a must see. Low entry fee which helps with the maintenance of the parking etc. so worth the visit

We started the panorama route early and this was our first stop. Nicely shaped rock with good views on it. We made a short hike to also have a good view on the waterfall and vallet behind the pinnacle. Nice location for a quick stop!
