The next stop was up to the Cervantes were we were dropped off at the hostel and had some free time to roam around a beach that was pretty much just ours and had a lovely turquoise colour to the water. It was a bit cold to go in so I sat at the beach enjoying the view.

We quickly stopped at a bottle shop to get supplies in for that evening and had a picture stop of white sand dunes that were once on the ground 8 feet above us.

Then the highlight of the day was to see the Pinnacles in the Nambung National Park at sunset now I have to say the sun did not play ball when it came to sunsetting behind the actual pinnacles themselves however to see the limestone structures that could go up to as 4 metres tall was my first taste of seeing Australia 's vast hisotry as they date back to many millions of years and were created by the process of erosion by water and wind.

It kind of looks like a massive crematory with the tombstone type shapes that is has but to view the park from its lookout and in the sun was beautiful and enjoying an Emu beer also helped. 

As the sun started to godown there were a few Kangaroo's around and also a few Galah's that made the rocks their home.

It was then time to head back to the hosetl where we all had a lovely dinner (Food on the tour was amazing!) where we all introduced ourselves to the group and talked for a bit but then all headed off to bed and were in it by 9:15 pm - Not a usual thing to see young British backpackers doing!
