Owner description: Beautiful beaches and coastal plains and, in the midst of it all, the unique Pinnacles Desert.

The landscape of the Pinnacles desert is like a scene from a science fiction movie - very different from anything we had seen before. We walked along the sandy track amongst the limestone pinnacles and found it strange and rather disruptive that 4-WD vehicles are allowed to drive through this part of the National Park. . . . The Discovery Centre close by is well designed and provides interesting info on the formation of the pinnacles and wildlife in the park.

We stayed a couple of hours, but many people seemed to rush around, and miss taking in the uniqueness of the pinnacles. Many pinnacles have shapes which could be faces, teeth, or almost anything you wish to dream up!

There is a supernatural Pinnacles desert, as many as several thousand spiers of granite with a height of 3.5 m as well, are towering over the desert sand yellow big ones. Is just about three hours drive north of Perth.
The sight looks so grandeur. I wanna recommend to go there, you must be feel the grandeur of nature.

25 mins from Cervantes, reached the turn-off to Nambung National Park and the Pinnacles Desert. Manned entry station, $11 = £7.16 per car, valid all day, even in different parks. Stopped at the first parking bay, and walked for 30 minutes – like a forest of thousands of red limestone pillars or standing stones, in a desert of yellow sand, with scrub here and there. While we were standing on a raised dune, we spotted a family of emu coming out of the bushes quite near us; Dad and 6 young ones, which trotted off madly every now and again, and then came carreering back to him. Stopped again (you can stop at lots of stopping places along the carefully marked trail which winds its way among the Pinnacles) after a 5min drive, at the ‘Desert View Lookout’ and walked for 15mins. Some plant vehicles there, busy building walkways and lookouts on some higher ground. Parked at the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Visitors’ centre, after completing the 4km one-way Pinnacles Drive, Very interesting pictures, dioramas and info on plants, birds and animals as well as the limestones themselves. Some lovely books for sale in their small shop too. Spent 40 mins in the VC, and then drove out of park, back towards Cervantes.

good for the whole family or just as fine if you're on your own. I would say a must see in you are in this part of the world. Take the time to see the understated stromatolites at Lake Thetis. It made me very humble to see these living fossils. Then drive back to Perth along the coral coast, absloutely beautiful
