One of Western Australia’s most visited attractions, the Pinnacles is a leading contender for Western Australia tourism. Covering an area of roughly 17,500 hectares, this desert is home to a diverse group of native animals. However, it is most famously known for the stunning limestone structures standing as high as five meters tall, formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago after the sea receded and left deposits of shells behind.

How to get there
- Roughly 200km north of Perth, you could go via a tour bus, or rent a car and drive there directly. If you’re driving from Perth, head north along Wanneroo Road (which will become Indian Ocean Drive) and turn right at the sign for the Pinnacles.
- Another option is to head north along Brand Highway and then turn left at the sign to Cervantes. From there, head south for approximately 2km until you reach the Nambung National Park boundary. Continue on a further 14km to the Pinnacles car park. The park has a $12 entrance fee per car.
