Nambung National Park is best known for the spectacular Pinnacles Desert and its proximity to Perth makes it a very popular day-trip.
If you have a car you can take the scenic drive that takes you past the more impressive areas. If you don’t have access to a car, a number of companies run day-trips from Perth.
The main features of the Pinnacles Desert are the limestone columns, some of which stand up to four metres tall.
The park includes the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre, which has informative displays about the park. The Desert View Trail (1.5km, 45 mins) is an easy walk that starts at the centre and takes you through the Pinnacles.
