Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park, Australia

The Pinnacles are located in Nambung National Park, about 25 kilometres south from the town of Cervantes and about 250 kilometres north of Perth, Western Australia. The Pinnacles were sculptured by wind, rain, vegetation, sun and time for many thousands of years from limestone. These limestone formations reach four metres tall of sand of varying colours. It is a favourite subject for photographers.About 250,000 tourists visit the Pinnacles Desert every year. The entrance to the park costs AUS$10.00 per car. The park opens from 9AM till 5PM, but you can stay longer to take some sunset or night shots. Or you can arrive at night to capture sunrise and pay later at daytime. But bear in mind that camping is not permitted in the park.
