Pinnacles Desert Sunset Stargazing Tour

136 reviews
The Pinnacles Desert is known for its unique limestone rock formations and lies in the Nambung National Park, an around 2-hour drive north of Perth. On this tour, set out in the afternoon and stop along the way to enjoy sandboarding, see Wildflowers at Nilgen nature reserve in season, then take a guided bush tucker/bush medicine walk at Hangover Bay before arriving at the Pinnacles desert. Then, enjoy a sunset dinner in the desert, followed by a guided stargazing experience.

The signage informed us that the stromatolites are the oldest living lifeforms on earth, formed through the activity of primitive unicellular organisms: cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and other algae. Interesting read to learn of the contribution of these organisms to the earth as we know it. Many of the stromatolites are damaged near the viewing platform. Good for some interesting photos.

Interesting little walk but it is a conservation area so you can’t leave the path. About 1-2 km from Cervantes caravan park.

You only need ten minutes to get your photo and move on. There is a 30 min walking track if that is more your thing. There’s signs telling you about the history too.

Raining when we went, but doesn't detract. Not many of these poor old fossils left🙁. But fascinating. Dirt road, but perfectly driveable.

You can walk around the lake and look at the stromatolites and there are a few placards with the description of them but it is a long drive from Perth just to see these (which look like rocks).
