It's our second visit and still loved the experience of strolling around this nature wonder and take lots of pictures. This time we stayed overnight in Cervantes (the previous time it was a day trip from Perth which was too tiring) and were able to get here during sunset and sunrise. Still, the best photos do not do justice to... More

Followed the walking track through these limestone structures, it was amazing how they were all so different, some looked like petrified tree trunks others resembled stalagmites. Also worth visiting the information centre while there.

While beaches and mountains are too mainstream, the Pinnacles desert offers a different experience for nature lovers. The park is so huge, there are many parts with pinnacles so you can always found a privacy spot for photoshoot eventhough there's a lot of visitors that day. The view is amazing. I like it here.

We loved our visit to the Pinnacles. We drove around, and that was OK, but I loved the walk, and walking amongst the Pinnacles gave you more a sense of place, rather than being in your car. The walk took you to some different spots too. Like being in a moonscape.

I first went to the Pinnacles when I was in high school, which was a long while ago. No-one much knew about them then but now they are a popular tourist destination. The Pinnacles are essentially limestone spires sticking out of the sand.

It is so unusual and it's just there, in the middle of everything else. Great for walking about (although I imagine in the heat of summer it would be uncomfortable), but in the off-season/winter there were very few people and we were able to walk and not see anyone else. It's just a fascinating geological area. Not much in the... More

My family and I drive in to Pinnacles shortly before 1700hrs to catch the famous sunset, so we missed any heat of the day. The wind was still pretty nippy, though! The Pinnacles really is an odd collection of rock formations in what I would say is a nice venture into a desert for beginners. The drive is easy sand... More
