Hump Day Post: Postcard from The Pinnacles

Nambung National Park in Western Australia is home to the famous Pinnacles. There are literally thousands of huge pillars that are made from limestone and rises from yellow sand. Their size varies with some standing about 5 metres high, down to smaller ones which are around knee-high.

To me, under certain light and conditions, it looks like a huge graveyard, not spooky or anything. It just looks unrealistic as the stone pillars rise from a desert barren land.

This National Park is located about 200 kilometres north of Perth and the Park itself covers an area of roughly 17.5 hectares. It’s believed the Pinnacles were formed around 25,000 years ago. Wildflowers springs to life from August to October – we were there too early this time for these wildflowers, but caught some further north.

You can drive around the park and if it’s cloudy, all the better as it’s a photographer’s playground!


About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
