Home to the famous Pinnacles Desert about a three hour drive north of Perth, Nambung National Park is one of Western Australia’s most unique natural attractions.
Here, thousands of huge limestone pillars rise from the shifting yellow sands and look more like something from a science fiction movie.
You can get up close to the Pinnacles on a scenic drive and walk trail that includes an amazing lookout over the park.
It’s believed the Pinnacles were created millions of years ago as seashells were broken down into sand and then eroded by water and wind.
Nambung National Park also features secluded white sandy beaches perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Hangover Bay is one the best known with picnic tables, gas barbecues and a boat launch.
The windsurfing and surfing is top-notch – and you might even see a bottlenose dolphin or sea lion swimming offshore.
From August to October the vegetation at Nambung National Park springs to life with colourful wildflowers.
Please note that animals and pets are not allowed in the park.
The park is easy to access by car or you can take a coach or four wheel drive tour to the Pinnacles from Perth.
