Sandy Point (close to Jurien Bay) is a good base for the Pinnacles just down the road and so the next day we headed out to visit this unusual amazing and beautiful Pinnacles. The Pinnacles are geological rock formations in the desert we spent a few hours looking at the beautiful puzzling formations. They are relatively young in geographical sense and there are two theories as to how they formed one being that they were sand between tree roots and the other is that the rock was trees. I think the first theory is more plausible given the rock is sandstone. Either way they were beautiful and usual site not like any other place I have seen. We all enjoyed them and played hide and seek.
After the Pinnacles we visited the Thetis Lake where we viewed some Stromatalites which are an ancient ‘bacteria’ that grow in a rock looking formation – very interesting but the flies at the lake were insane! So after quick view we headed back to camp.
The next day we hung out at Sandy point and climbed up some sand dunes with the kids boogie boards for some sand sledding which was enjoyed by everyone. We also checked out the sea cave at the end of the beach and some swimming in the afternoon.
These dues were steep and we rode them down almost into the ocean. Sandy Point was a great spot many people were also fishing off the beach and catching some good ones. We didn’t try our luck but will get the rod out at the next camp.
