Cervantes. Western Australia. One of the strange rocks in the Pinnacles National Park.

The ancient limestone pillars of the Pinnacles are often several metres tall. They are scattered across the landscape in their thousands creating an eerie almost alien-like landscape. The highest are three and half metres and some finish in a jagged point while others have rounded domes. They are made up of shells from a time when the Pinnacles were beneath the sea. Once exposed to the atmosphere water and wind erosion has removed the softer limestone to reveal the harder inner upright cores.
