Although it took a 650km round trip with Pinnacle Tours, a worthwhile day was spent travelling north from Perth to visit the Cavendish Wildlife Park (koala, kangaroo, and wombats) before a long pull up to the Nambung National Park, home of the famous 'Pinnacles'.

These are eroded stubs of limestone, probably formed from tree stumps from an ancient drowned forest, which are now appearing through the sandy base of this area.

Great views out to the coral sea of Jurien Bay Marine Park, situated in the warm currents of the Indian Ocean.
Then a bit of 'dune bashing' in a large 4WD vehicle amongst the huge white sand dunes of Lancelin, back towards Perth. An atmospheric spot with a fine sunset to the west and a full moon to the east. Happy days.
