The Pinnacle desert of Cervantes

January 28th, 2010

The Pinnacle desert of Cervantes is probably the best attraction of both Jurien Bay and Cervantes and you can drive through this park bycar. We rented a large 4wd and managed to drive precisely through the pinnacle formations on the unsealed road but I don't think our car should have been a size bigger..

The landscape of the Nambung National Park desert with all the yellow coloured sands and rock formations is really pretty and you will be able to look out over the Pinnacle Desert from a wooden outlook.

Do bring something to eat and enough drinking water as you won't find any shops or eateries near the Nabung National Park area.
