We had an idea of what we thought it would look like, but it was, well different to what we expected! For a start I had expected it to be a long way inland, not a hop skip and a jump away from the Coastline. It seemed so….random. Whilst it is in a desert of sorts, in many places you can see the sea! The other thing I had expected was a 4WD track, but that too was not the case. You are not permitted to tow your camper trailer or caravan through the Park, I suspect because of some of the tight turns. However the road is firm, and all manner of vehicles could easily take the drive. We drove through several times, pulling into lay-aways and jumping out to get up close and personal with The Pinnacles!
The children had talked for days about playing hide and seek in amongst the great limestone stacks, so they wasted no time getting amongst them.
We quickly discovered where Billy Connelly did his “nudie run.” If we had…say….a where’s wally type spandex suit or a Travelling Beanie I am sure Daniel would have done this! Perhaps it is a Blessing for all that he didn’t! However, I am putting it out there for travelling friends “Beth and Jason”….when you get to The Pinnacles we will be watching closely to see just what you do!!!
We were amazed at the huge sand dunes seemingly poised ready to engulf the unsuspecting Pinnacles standing below. It really is an unusual place. On one end there were desert sand dunes, in other parts there were small Pinnacles, in yet other parts there were towering Pinnacles that made the Troopy look small.
What a great day! We thoroughly enjoyed romping through the Pinnacles!
