Varying in height from centimetres to five metres, the golden limestone pillars rising from the desert at The Pinnacles in WA will have you thinking you’ve landed on another planet. As the sun sets, this spectacular landscape takes on an eerie atmosphere in the changing light, and will leave all, young or old, looking on in awe. Accessible by car from the north via Cervantes or from Perth on the scenic Indian Ocean Drive; on a day trip with a tour operator or for a longer stay at the Pinnacles Campground, this is an experience you won’t forget. You can also stop at Caversham Wildlife Park, where the kids can view koalas and wombats, and handfeed kangaroos. See westernaustralia.com for more information.
