Pinnacles Desert

The eerie limestone shapes of the Pinnacles are a popular day trip from Perth, rising out of the desert floor like something from a lunar landscape. The weather-worn pillars were formed by zillions of seashells blown here from the sea many thousands of years ago.

The surrounding landscape is made up of desert and dunes. Bottlenose dolphins can be seen in nearby Hangover Bay, and in the park you’ll also see gray kangaroos, emus, cockatoos and other birds.

Learn more about the ecology and biodiversity of this country at the Pinnacles Desert Discovery interpretive center, with displays, information, shops and lookout.

While you’re here, take the opportunity to swim and laze on white-sand beaches, try fishing or snorkeling, or bring a picnic and cook up a storm on the park’s barbecues.

Practical Info

The Pinnacles are in Nambung National Park, 245 km (152 miles) north of Perth, around a three-hour drive by 4x4 or coach tour.

The best time to visit is spring (September to October) when Western Australia’s famous wildflowers bring the desert alive with color.
