The Pinnacles

So, why does the sand change colour like that then???? Answers on...

Lots and lots of pinnacles!


Tues 16/11 Warm

Off on t'road at 7am - our driver is Steve, nice guy, if a little insane! The rest of the group are cool, french, german, uk, oz, swedish & italian, and I think a first since I've been away - no japs! There's 18 of us, but it is a jump on jump off service, so pepole will come and go along the way. We did lots of driving today (well, Steve did!) up to Kalbarri - 750km with our only real stop being Nambung National Park to see the pinnacles - 17,500ha - thousands of limestone pillars, up to 4m high, rising out of bizarre yellow sand - quite spooky! Like looking at a massive graveyard! Then onwards and upwards......

Arrived in Kalbarri at 6.30pm, and the majority of us went to the pub for fodder. There's a stunning seafood restaurant here, which we have a $10 deal arrangement at, but it was shut, with a sign 'gone fishing in Darwin' - that's no bloody good to us!!! Oh well, we had a good night, just more expensive than expected! Spent most of it chatting to Chris, Susie & Telarie (all welsh), other noticeables in the group are Adam & Helen, both English - teenagers, but very mature for their age, Joel from Melbourne, and Carl from Sweden.... all the rest are nice, but I s'pose we're the more 'chatty' ones - or is those that drink more????
