The sandstone is up to 3000m thick and was deposited about 400 million years ago. Following the first rains of the year, wildflowers start to appear in a spectacular array of colours. More than a 1000 species of plants are flowering between May and November each year. We will stop at the Shell Quarry next to the old Telegraph Station.

Day 4, Thursday - Cervantes - Perth (B)

PinnaclesToday we will show you the Pinnacles, a group of about 150,000 weird limestone formations ranging from less than a metre to up to five metres high. Formed 15 to 30 thousand years ago from the deposits of shell left behind when the sea receded, time, erosion and the winds have combined to form such formations as the Indian Chief, Milk Bottles and many others. When seen against their background of golden sand, it is reminiscent of a field of ancient ruins. After our visit to the Pinnacles we will drive back to Perth.
