|The Pinnacles, north of Perth|
When people come to Perth as tourists, they're often "instructed" to visit the Pinnacles. This means you have to drive north of Perth for about three hours, turn left towards the tiny town of Cervantes, and then come across this yellow desert full of strange column-shaped rocks.
Unfortunately, lots of tourists do it on a day trip, and that means they spend by far the majority of the day in a bus and a matter of minutes exploring some of these beautiful places. Don't do it! The Pinnacles and the area around it are really magnificent places to visit but you need to take the time to explore, relax, and generally not expect to see ten thousand tourist sites in one day. Western Australia's too big for that!
