Nambung National Park information
Lonely Planet review
Situated 19km from Cervantes, Nambung is home to the spectacular Pinnacles Desert , a vast, alien-like plain studded with thousands of limestone pillars. Rising eerily from the desert floor, the pillars are remnants of compacted seashells that once covered the plain and, over millennia, subsequently eroded. A loop road runs through the formations, but it's more fun to wander on foot, especially at sunset, full moon or dawn, when the light is sublime and the crowds evaporate.
Nearby Kangaroo Point and Hangover Bay make nice picnic spots with BBQs and tables. The latter has the better swimming.
