This unusual national park is composed of beach and sand dunes and extends inland from the Indian Ocean coast. The park is well known for the 'Pinnacles', a region of curious limestone pillars that rise out of the sand to a height of 13 feet.
The park is particularly beautiful during the spring when the weather is cooler and wildflowers can be seen blooming.
Around Nambung National Park
The town of Cervantes is an excellent gateway to the Nambung National Park and is a pleasant, rather underdeveloped, fishing village with three jetties, a very good motel, a caravan park and a rock lobster processing plant.
The town's fishing fleet nearly doubles in the rock lobster season. Like all of the coast on the Central West the town is surrounded by spectacular displays of wildflowers in the spring. Cervantes takes its name from an American whaling ship which was wrecked off the coast in 1844.
