From the Pinnacles, there is
an option to go for a two to three hour walk to the coloured desert
areas marked on the park brochure. Ask the ranger for directions and
you should carry at least one litre of water per person and wear
sturdy footwear and a hat. A compass is also highly recommended.
The turn-off to Kangaroo Point is 7.5 km
from the park entrance. Here, you can find picnic shelters, gas
barbecues and toilets. To the north-west you can see Cervantes from
Thirsty Point. Out to sea are the Cervantes Islands.
The access road to Hangover Bay is 11.6 km from the park
entrance. This beautiful bay has a white sandy beach. It offers good
snorkelling, swimming, windsurfing, surfing and beachcombing.
Bottlenose dolphins and sea lions can also be seen. There is a spot
with picnic tables, gas barbecues, and a boat launch
(four-wheel-drive access only).
The park is about
three hours drive from the centre of Perth. Cervantes is 245 km
north of Perth via the Brand Highway. The turn off to the park is
off Cervantes Road, which runs off the Brand Highway.
Barbecues, information panels, tables and toilets.
There are no camping areas in the national park.
Interesting all year round. The wildflowers season is during
September to October.
