The Pinnacles Desert is 257 kms north of Perth. You can drive or take a half day tour from Perth. The sandy desert is known for its peculiar limestone pillars ranging from a few centremetres in hight to some towering 5 metres. They are calcified spires of around 30,000 years old which have been gradually uncovered by erosion. The main group are known as the Tombstones.

Try and visit the Pinnacles either early in the morning, when the sun is rising, or late in the afternoon. A really amazing site. The sand dunes along the coast are spectacular.
