The Pinnacles

This alien landscape can be found 250km out of Perth – that’s practically the back door step when you consider how vast Western Australia is.

The pinnacles were formed over a million years ago from seashells. A process of wind and water formed them into the eerie limestone sentinels you see today.

The best time of day to see them is early morning or late afternoon as the changing light brings out an atmospheric mood you won’t see during the day. That is why it is best to camp overnight.


Many native animals can be found around the pinnacles. Even though most of them are nocturnal, you might glimpse emus or kangaroos during the day.
