What you can expect
Venture out for a day among the rock formations, rolling dunes, and pristine beaches of the Pinnacles Desert and Nambung National Park. Trek through the unusual limestone spires that give the desert its name, and learn about the intriguing geological forces at work behind this surreal landscape.
After you get picked up at your hotel, make your way into the heart of Nambung National Park, tightening your shoelaces as you set off along a hiking trail behind your guide. Walk along 2.5 miles (4 km) of windswept terrain, taking in the mysterious spectacle of thousands of limestone pillars rising from the sands.
Stop at the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre to learn about the hidden wonders of the park, and then head into Cervantes to relax over lunch. From there, make your way to Thirsty Point, a viewpoint offering an incredible panorama over bone-white beaches and shimmering turquoise waters. Stretch your legs with a walk along the beach, and then pass through grassy valleys dotted with kangaroos to visit Lake Thetis, where you can get an up-close look at the lake's thrombolites—rock-like structures build by tiny, ancient micro-organisms.
