The Pinnacles, Perth: 20 reviews and 32 photos


When visiting the Pinnacles, we learned from people in the area, that the best time to see them was at sunrise, or sunset. Anyone we asked, or anything we read about it, recommended these times.

Once we finally visited them, we realized what they were saying. We arrived around 330pm. As the sun began to fall closer to the horizon, its casted shadows, and allowed you to see colors of the desert that are ussaully dulled by a high blazing sun on the horizon.

As the sun fell lower. You could see beautiful oranges, purples, blues, yellows, and reds throughout the desert and the rocks. The shadows added a different look of dimensions to the pilars of limestone.

Also, dont let anyone tell you they are just rocks. It is a breath taking landscape, unlike any i have seen in the world, and a fascinating look into the earth early geology. A must see while in Western Australia, and a must see at sunset or sunrise.
