We have just completed two great days exploring around the area of Cervantes.
One of the most impressive sites to see was the Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park. These mounds of all shapes and sizes (similar to termite mounds) were formed thousands of years ago and are actually limestone. They range in size from a few centimetres to 5 meters tall.
Housed in the Interperative centre is the scientific explanation for them which is too long to be put in the blog.
You are able to walk around the Pinnacles or you can drive around a formed road which you must stay on. This drive takes you well in to the park where you can get amazing views from the lookouts.
Another part of the national park is the Hanson Bay. A climb of 67 steps to a lookout at the top of the dunes gives views up and down the coast with torquise waters and white sands.
The next day was spent walking around the town and the waterfront where lobster boats were anchored in the very calm bay.
Tomorrow it's off again further north towards Geraldton with an overnight free camp on the way.
