Very unusual and beautiful natural formations. A must stop.

We've traveled extensively and have never seen any natural formation like these. We'd recommend the very well marked 4 km loop drive, as it takes you right amount the pinnacles... read more

The Pinnacles is a fascinating place to visit, but you must be prepared that the unique rock structures are actually a lot smaller than depicted in Tourist Brochure photos. So, you won't see giant structures, just ones (with some exceptions) mostly around your own height and less. It is still incredible that you can walk amongst them and decide on... More

We've traveled extensively and have never seen any natural formation like these. We'd recommend the very well marked 4 km loop drive, as it takes you right amount the pinnacles, providing you with close-up and and more distant panoramic views of the pinnacles with the sand dunes and the sea on the horizon. Afterwards the discovery center is also a... More

Go at sunrise. Make sure you drop your money into the Honesty Box. Be there for the best part of the day - we got told sunset was so busy we were glad we got up at 4 am in Cervantes and went there (only a short drive). Beautiful photos amazing rock formations. This was our last day in Cervantes... More

Amazing. Kids loved it. Would have been nice to have gone on a moderate day as the heat overtook the enjoyment of discovery.

We arrived there in a hot day, so, diriving on the track was the only option for us. Photo stopping areas with parking space were sufficients. Dust may be a problem to some. By the way, don't expect to find food and drink around there, you should stop for lunch or refreshment break in a near by town.

It is quite a drive from Perth but worth it! It looks like it is on another planet. Amazing about Australia is that the nature is so different all around the country. The pinnacles are in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. Your fantasy will go crazy at this place, so get going!

Went here with my partner as part of a weekend trip away from Perth. It's definitely worth visiting just to see the pinnacles as they are unique. It's a pity however that there isn't more information/research into how they came to exist. This is addressed at the discovery centre, as well as some other information regarding native flora and fauna.... More

This is one of the day trips recommended from Perth. Best way to get there is hire a car, leave perth early to avoid being there in the heat of the Sun. 12 dollars fee per vehicle up to 12 occupants. You can drive around the desert to look at the limestone outcrops. We even climbed one of the sandunes,... More

The pinnacles are an interesting and popular destination. Amazing colours and walking around was otherworldly. The visitor centre promises to explain how they are formed, but does not, it's a mystery, also no food here so don't stop at lunch. The trip was worthwhile to see the scenery on the way, make part of a northern day trip from Perth.... More

The Pinnacles are quite the experience. The formations themselves are an amazing sight to see. From a photography perspective, it can be challenging simply because of the number of people trying to do exactly what you're doing. I was not expecting to see cars driving through the Pinnacles themselves. The drive to Cervantes from Perth is an enjoyable one and... More
