About this park
All within a couple of hours drive of Perth this park has many highlights. The Pinnacles Desert is surrounded by coastal plains, white sand dunes, and beautiful swimming beaches.
The shifting dune systems and low heathland support a rich variety of flowering plants. This vegetation bursts into flower from August to October, creating a memorable spectacle. Blooming wildflowers and vistas of wattles stretch from horizon to horizon.
Walk the loop trail and boardwalk at Lake Thetis and step back in time. Find out about stromatolites, no not meteorites! Stromatolites are rock-like structures that date back to the dawn of life on earth. Wow!
Come back down to earth with a swim at one of the park’s beaches. Offshore is a stunning reef system protected in the Jurien Bay Marine Park. Nambung National Park has all year-round interest and makes a great day trip from Perth.
Review - Otherwordly experience
Nambung National Park is a fantastic, otherworldly experience! There is plenty to occupy your time here: The Desert Discovery Centre (Visitor Centre) is very well done; the 4km desert drive is fun and the 1.2km desert walk is a surreal experience! The geology here is very unique and definitely not to be missed! Keith-B-Robinson – Trip Advisor
Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about bushwalking, swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkelling and diving. Consider traveling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
