The Pinnacles are another place on my list of places I must see to have gone around Australia. Huge limestone pillars poking out of the ground? That I’ve got to see!
What I hadn’t expected was the huge amount of land that The Pinnacles cover. They just keep going and going. We spend most of the day there, horrified that people are just driving around such an amazing place. The breathtaking site of thousands of limestone fingers of various sizes poking out of the ground greets us. The heat is something we hadn’t anticipated, beating down from above and reflecting up from the sand.
We leave to go to the beach during the heat of the day, and return at sunset. It is absolutely stunning, and we love it.
Jarrad and I rise at 5am the next morning, and quickly get ready before we carry the sleeping kids into the car. They are mostly awake when we reach The Pinnacles and unhitch the campervan in the car park. We drive into The Pinnacles proper, and enjoy watching the sun rise over the limestone fingers.
