Cervantes is approximately 245 kilometres or three hours’ drive north of Perth, the capital city of Western Australia, and is home to the world-famous Pinnacles Desert.
Only four kilometres inland from the beach, the amazing Pinnacles are one of the State’s favourite and most unique attractions.
The drive through Nambung National Park on the way to the Pinnacles allows visitors the fantastic opportunity to see kangaroos and emus in their natural environment, along with a diverse array of wildflowers, when in season.
The Cervantes area also features some of the spectacular pristine beaches (like thirsty point near Cervantes above) of the Turquoise Coast. From this wonderful coastline, the town of Cervantes thrives on the multi-million dollar rock lobster industry. Visitors can enjoy the incredible marine life found in the waters off the coast and have the opportunity to interact with sea lions.
Visit the stromatolites in Lake Thetis (pictured below), play a game of golf, enjoy swimming, snorkelling, fishing and exploring the offshore reefs and islands in the area.
