One of the most impressive landscapes of Australia, the Pinnacles Desert stands in the heart of the Nambung National Park in Western Australia.

Located about 250 km from Perth, Australia the Pinnacles Desert features unusual huge limestone structures creating a unique scenery. All the pinnacles differ in sizes and some of them reach over 3.5 m high.

These pinnacles have been formed over the years by lime reaching from sand and rain and finally carved by the wind. The pinnacles were largely unknown till the 1960s when the region became a part of the Nambung National Park. The area sees over 250,000 travelers every year. A visitor and interpretive center was added in the year 2008.

The best time to visit the area is between August and October and the formation of pinnacles are best viewed at dawn or dusk when the sun creates unusual shadows. From August to October, the weather is mild and this is when the wildflowers surrounding the desert are in full bloom.

The Pinnacles Desert can be accessed from Perth by car or coach. At presents the only road that leads to Pinnacles Desert is 27Km long. Visitors can enjoy seeing these pillars from a closer point by walking through the trail. The park is open from 9am to 5pm.

Visitors are advised to carry water and food when they set out to explore the desert.
