The Pinnacles Desert

Take a 200km north of Perth, and you’ll find yourself at Nambung National Park, the home of the famous Pinnacles. Formed over 25,000 years ago, the naturally formed limestone pillars attract over 200,000 Australian and International visitors every year! Arguably Western Australia’s most famous natural wonder, the Pinnacles came to be as sand receded over the years and left deposits of sea shells leaving each pillar unique in shape and size as the elements have worn them down over the millennia. Some are up to 5 metres tall! Often described as otherworldly or alien-like, the Pinnacles desert must-do for a photo opportunity and we recommend you try and time it for sunrise or sunset to get the full effect! You’ll also be sure to see a vast array of animals and bird life that roam across the 190km Pinnacles desert.
