Regarded as one of Australia's most unique landscapes, the Pinnacles of Nambung are incredible limestone spires that rise eerily out of the sand, some several meters tall. You can get up close to the Pinnacles on a scenic drive and walk trail that includes an amazing lookout over the Nambung National Park. It's believed the Pinnacles were created millions of years ago as seashells were broken down into the sand and then eroded by water and the wind.
The Pinnacles National Park is fringed by secluded, white beaches great for swimming, snorkelling and surfing. Go fishing from Thirsty Point Lookout or visit and swim in the turquoise waters of Hangover Bay.
The extraordinary ancient rock formations that make up the Pinnacles are located about a two-hour drive north of Perth near the coastal town of Cervantes.The Pinnacles are easy to access by car or you can take a coach tour from Perth with ADAMS Pinnacle Tours.
