The Nambung National Park is located in the Swan coastal plain at a distance of 150 miles (245km) north of Perth. This national park is renowned for its unique but fascinating attraction, known as the Pinnacles Desert.
The Pinnacles consists of myriad limestone formations that seem to be growing out of the desert earth. These pillars are of various shapes and sizes, with some even reaching 3.5 meters (11.375 feet) in height. They make for a strange but fascinating sight, which is best viewed during the spring months when the desert is awash with the gorgeous colors of the many wildflowers.
Other attractions at the Nambung National Park include virgin white-sand beaches, which offer opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and fishing, entertaining activities for all ages.
