The Pinnacles Desert Reviews & Ratings
Awesome place. Fabulous Especially for night you can see lots of stars in the sky and shooting stars as well. Also you can drive into the desert and feel very awesome.Unique place. Night pictures are really cool. We.also saw.some wild birds.noone in there
Definitely worth the visit. There is a gift shop, gallery, restroom and small snacks. Highly recommend you plan accordingly as the closest towns are about 2 hours away. Beautiful and unique view definitely not something you would see - through a guided tour bus especially given how narrow the roads are.
A must stop location if you are travelling up or down the WA coast. Bizarre limestone pinnacles poking out of the desert sand. If you are into photography, make sure you go at sunrise or sunset to avoid the crowds and for the best light (the golden hours)
Great drive through the natural featured. Very well arranged, plenty of spots to pull over for photos. Most of the drive arranged as a loop so no need to worry about incoming traffic. Lots of places to take quiet photos, even during busy time. You can also explore by foot but it does get very hot. The visitor center is also well worth a visit
Well worth the drive out from Perth. Amazing land formation stretching across a large area of the Nambung national park. It is a nice drive through a very well laid out track. There are also areas where you can stop and check out the area from lookouts, or walk through the Pinnacles. There is also an excellent information center. Half of it is like a museum detailing key information about the area and the Pinnacles, the other half is a well stocked Gift shop that also sells refreshments
