I always enjoy seeing strange and unusual places and the Pinnacle Desert in Nambung National Park definitely qualifies as a strange and unusual place. It is located very close to the beach but the scenery gave me the feeling that I was on the surface of Mars and nowhere near the ocean.
Nambung National Park is about a two hour drive from Perth so it is not a place that is going to be crowded. There was no other people at the park when we arrived but other people did arrive while we were still in the park. Times when I am in nature with no other people within sight are times that I cherish because it is difficult to have those experiences.
I like the rock lined paths that designates the driving route. The rocks easily outline the driving area but they don’t distract from the beauty of the environment like a guard rail would. I think people that come to an area like this appreciate nature in its pure form and they will try not to disturb the nature while they enjoy their visit.
Wandering around a hot desert with strong wind blowing sand around and looking at strand shaped rocks may not be everyone’s idea of how they want to spend their vacation but there may not be another place on earth like Nambung National Park and that makes my visit very special for me.
