The Pinnacles, Western Australia

The Pinnacles are limestone formations within Nambung National Park, near the town of Cervantes, Western Australia. Attracting over 190,000 visitors each year, the Pinnacles of Nambung National Park are the major natural attraction in the Coral Coast region of Cervantes and Jurien Bay.

The park is located roughly 200 kilometres north of Perth and covers an area of 17,487 hectares, providing a natural habitat for an extensive array of native animals and birdlife.




The lunar-like Pinnacles form one of Australia’s most unique and fascinating natural landscapes. Formed over millions of years, thousands of tall limestone spires rise eerily out of the yellow desert sands of Nambung National Park, just outside the coastal town of Cervantes.

Thousands of eerie limestone pillars, up to 4m tall form the Pinnacles Desert. The moonscape scenery is made by the pillars rising out of the stark desert landscape of yellow quartz sand. It is a favourite subject for photographers.
