Desert View Walk Trail Pinnacles

Desert View Walk Trail

Nambung National Park

Directions - Nambung National Park is a 2.5 hour drive north of Perth along Wanneroo Rd and Indian Ocean Drive. The turn-off for the Pinnacles Discovery Centre is well marked and it is a short drive from Indian Ocean Dr to the park entry. The 4km Pinnacles Drive is suitable for 2WD cars and is an alternative to the walk trail.


The Hike - With a free weekend in the lead up to the Oxfam Trailwalker where hiking was meant to be kept to a minimum, the Wife of Py suggested we take a trip to the Pinnacles. Given we had both either not been before or visited as a very young child, it seemed like a good idea to check out one of Western Australia's most iconic landscapes. I convinced her to do a side trip to Yanchep NP on the way so I could re-shoot the Ghost House Walk Trail (update coming soon) so we loaded up the car with a picnic, some hiking gear and made our way north for the very long journey to Yanchep National Park and then Nambung National Park, another 140km up Indian Ocean Drive.
