The Pinnacles Desert covers an area of approximately 190 hectares, is around 60 meters above sea level, and contains thousands of limestone pinnacles, some up to 5 meters high within the Nambung National Park in the Coral Coast region of Western Australia.

The variation in colours (mainly due to the variation in soil types), and the stark relief of the pinnacles against a backdrop of constantly shifting sand dunes is a spectacular sight.

The pinnacle formations are best viewed in the early morning or late afternoon. The play of light brings out stunning colours and the extended shadows of the formations delivers a contrast that brings out their features.

Most animals in the park are nocturnal, but emus and kangaroos can be seen during the daytime, more commonly in the evening or early morning.

Take a trip into the world of nature and visit the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre which is also located in the Nambung National Park. The centre is a stepping stone into the park with a track for walkers and an interpretive centre that encourages you to use all your senses to identify the hidden wonders and signs of life in the desert.

The park is around a 3 hour drive north from Perth (3.5 hours from Fremantle) and is easy to access by car. Day coach and four wheel drive tours are available. Visit the tours and tickets page.
