The Pinnacles Desert is deep within the Nambung National Park, in Western Australia. It is an other worldly landscape with thousands of jagged Limestone pillars piercing the desert sands, some over five meters tall.
The Pinnacles are an ever changing spectacle with desert and coastal winds moving sand dunes, constantly rearranging the face of this incredible site. Smaller pinnacles disappear, buried under the sand, only to re-emerge days later as the winds change direction.
In 1650 when the Dutch explored this part of Western Australia, they thought at first that these incredible spires were the remains of a lost ancient city!
