The Pinnacles

A scenic three hour journey from Perth along the Indian Ocean Drive you’ll find Nambung National Park home to one of Australia’s most unique natural landscapes, the Pinnacles. Observe the fascinating desert and its thousands of huge limestone pillars that mysteriously rise out of the sand. The amazing formations, some standing as high as five metres tall in contrast to their flat surrounds are really quite a sight.

The pillars were formed around 30,000 years ago in an era when the area was rich in marine life. After the sea levels receded, sea shells broke down into lime rich sands which were blown inland to form high mobile dunes. Over time, coastal winds removed the surrounding sand, leaving the limestone pillars exposed. There is controversy surrounding the formation of these fascinating pinnacles however you’ll be sure to agree, that it’s no doubt an intriguing sight!

Although a distinctive feature, The Pinnacles form only part of this marvellous National Park. Be awestruck by the coastal dune systems and flora and fauna that surrounds. Keep your eyes peeled for emus and kangaroos that can often be spotted around the National Park, a fantastic natural habitat for native Australian animals and birdlife.
