We made the 200 kilometre Drive up the Indian Ocean Drive from Perth to see the Pinnacles and the Stromatolites at Lake Thetis. I studied geology at college so found both these locations fascinating.
We decided to stay in Cervantes to make to most of the journey as we then intended to drive south to the Margaret River wine region.
We both said so pleased we made the effort to see the Pinnacles. The understanding of how the Pinnacles are formed is still on going. Current thinking is they are around 500,000 years old and were perhaps exposed recently only 6,000 years ago.
When you do the drive you will notice a lot of large sand hills that seem to be growing and moving over the green vegetation. I reckon this area is permanent changing and evolving. Not a good place to build a house. You will find it one day full of sand.
