    The Pinnacles

    by keeweechic Updated Jun 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pinnacles are an amazing attraction which have been described as a moonscape by some depending on the time of day you view them. This sight is the biggest draw card of the area between Perth and Carnavon and a photographers delight. The formations range from a few centimetres tall to some that around 5 metres high.

    To see the Pinnacles Desert, you can either drive the 257 kms or take a half day tour of Perth. If you can, they are best viewed either early in the morning when the sun is rising or later in the afternoon as the sun is going down. The main group of formations is known as the Tombstones.

    Not to Mention a Long One

    Overtime the lowest layer of soil between the surface and the limestone formed a hard cap. With the drier weather in the area, the top layer of plants and soil were removed and the pinnacles were exposed to appear like they do today.

    An Amazing Process of Creation

    by keeweechic Updated Nov 6, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A series of unique conditions occurred which fashioned the pinnacles. There was a stabilisation of huge sand dunes. Then rain which fell on the dunes leaked down through the sand carrying with it calcium which resulted in the lower levels of the dune solidifying into a soft limestone. When this occurred a layer of soil formed on top of the dune which allowed vegetation to grow which further reinforced the limestone beneath.

    The Pinnacles in Nambung...

    The Pinnacles in Nambung National Park.
    It´s best to go either very early or very late when the sun hangs low so the pinnacles cast long shadows. You can walk among them which i think is best you can do. It´s a quite large area and is has some dunes aswell. There´s also a gravel road going through the park but that´s just half the fun.

    Hangover is a fabulous isolated and pristine beach tucked within the Nambung National Park. There are NO shops, so bring plenty of water and food.
