While landscape might not be quite as majestic as several other "natural" geological wonderful places such as the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone, Devils Monument , and I'm sure many others around the world, this is a unique enjoyable place to see. Certainly one of the highlights of our trip around Western Australia. In my opinion, it's very comparable to... More

Husband and I visited the Pinnacles during sunset. Him being from Sydney thought it was "just a bunch of rocks" but when we got there and did a drive through the desert he was amazed and taken by surprise! It was truly a magical place. Sunset is spectacular over the desert.

so glad came to the pinnacles, never seen anything like this before, very sereal and took loads of pictures. Definitely a good little stop off if travelling the west coast. Could have spent longer there exploring as thousands of rock pillars spread over a large area. Wear a hat and take some water your need them...

Very unusual formations and it is poosble to both walk as we Very unusual rock formations which cannot be seen from the highway. Despite the $12 national park entry fee it is so different to anything else that it is a 'must do'. Be warned at this time of year the flies are out in force,

Within 2.5 hours north of Perth, you enter another planet. Thousands of straight rock pillars jut out of the smooth sand dunes for a must-see attraction of WA.

Our guide Carola was superb, very knowledgeable. She even had sun cream just in case you forgot yours. An early start took us to Caversham Park then onto a chocolate factory and wine tasting. Stopped for lunch at Mandoon Winery had the best burger ever a Wagyu burger. Then onto the Pinnacles....truly amazing. Then we went on to try our... More

Big rocks coming out of the ground. The kids weren't to fussed about it but we enjoyed the drive around the place as well as doing the walking track. I would suggest coming back at sunset to grab some photos of the sunset at the Desert view. Also remember to bring bottle water or drinks if you are going to... More

It cost $12 aud per vehicle to enter the pinnacle desert, cheap and big place to keep you entertain for hours. There is a souvenir shop and walking trails, the souvenir shop overall is much more cheaoer. There is also a museum to showcase the animals living in the desert as well as information on how these rock formation are... More
