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.
