Owner description: Beautiful beaches and coastal plains and, in the midst of it all, the unique Pinnacles Desert.
Reviewed 2 February 2018

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.

It is a great place to visit just on your own, small group or organized tour. Take some water with you, while it can got very hot in sunny days. As well as, as you walk into the area, try to remember directions, while you can also easily loose orientation and can be stocked for a while...

lovely place to visit and to take some great pictures!

Please, don't climb or sit on pinnacles, while they can be easily destroyed! try to leave them to be seen for others!

Easy to reach and a relative short ride from Perth. I was there the week after Christmas and all was fully booked. Fortunate for us we had our own camper and there was an overflow campsite on the Cervantes oval. The park is worth a visit and spectecular is of course the Pinnacles desert. Again it was busy but wouldn't have missed it for the world.

ca. 200km north from Perth, its not a drop in visit so its a long way to travel, sure they're impressive and the nature is unique, be careful of the heat, a long day trip from Perth. Theres a gift shop and toilets, the entrance fee is 13 dollars per car.

Passed by and popped in. Drove through as we do. Worth the entry fee to marvel at the spectacle that this location offers. Nature at its spookiest, almost seems like a film set. It is real. We are lucky to be able to take it all in. Photos are fab. Like no place Ive ever been to on this earth. It is a must for visitors !
