We left Perth early in the morning to get to see the Pinnacles. The drive is long but there is a few places on the way where you can stop for a drink and a snack.
The Pinnacles are an amazing sight! There is thousands of them. If you can, do the walk, which is about 1.2 km. Many people walk to the Desert view lookout and walk the same way back but we decided to take the longer walk, which was worth it. We were the only people walking that way, the signage is very good and you would have to try hard to get lost. We did not think it was that much longer but in our view it was prettier.
After a drink in their shop, we took the Pinnacle Drive, which is a 4km loop. There is many parking spots on the way where you can take a photo.

We went about 20 minutes before sunset, and believe it was a perfect time to be there, with the sun shining on the Pinnacles and long shadows being cast.

Great trip to the Pinnacles in WA.. 3 hours drive north from Perth city. Must do if you’re Western Australia. It was a hot sunny day, you can drive through the pinnacles and you can also walk the trail. Take water with you if you’re walking the trail.

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.
