The Cervantes Region is best known as the home of the world-renowned Pinnacles. Tourists flock from around the world to visit this natural phenomenon, a series of limestone pillars of all shapes and sizes intriguingly protruding from the desert sands. The Pinnacles are located in the Nambung National Park. Cevantes is a popular fishing village and offers much more to the visitor, such as - snorkelling, hiking, fishing, boating, windsurfing and relaxing strolls along the pristine, white, sandy beaches.
Conventional two wheel drive vehicles can access Nambung National Park by road, south from Cervantes. Entry is $11 per car and access to the Pinnacles area itself is by a 100 metre walking trail from the car park.
A scenic drive is also available for light vehicles, but you must remain on the marked track. The little Painted Desert and unusual white dunes can also be viewed from the Pinnacles Lookout and is a pleasurable 4-5 kilometre walk through the Nambung National Park. If you’re planning an extended walk of this kind, please contact the Ranger Station in Cervantes on (08) 9545 7043. No camping is allowed in Nambung National Park, but barbeque facilities and toilets are available. Be sure to bring along a hat, sturdy footwear and bottled water as no drinking water is available.
After the winter rains, the Turquoise Coast, along with other parts of the Wheatbelt put on a spectacular wildflower display - orchids, kangaroo paws, everlastings and more. The wildflower season provides a blanket of colour, which is a delight to the eye. The Cervantes region is home to some of WA`s most beautiful flora and fauna and is a hiker`s delight with trails across the region.
