The Pinnacles and Nambung National Park
The world famous Pinnacles are situated in the Nambung National Park, 17 kilometres south of Cervantes. Visitors can view the Pinnacles by booking a tour through the Visitors Centre or driving themselves to Nambung National Park. Drive the Pinnacles Loop for 3.5 kilometres to see these amazing natural structures that are formed from limestone created from ancient shells. They are particularly stunning in the glow of the setting sun or at sunrise. Many native animals including birds and reptiles are more visible at these times.
One kilometre south of Cervantes is Lake Thetis, named after the sailing ship Thetis which surveyed the coast between 1847 and 1848. This tidal lake is three metres deep and with double the salinity of the ocean has enabled Stromatolites to form over many, many years and these ancient living organisms are visible from the water’s edge.
Hangover Bay and Kangaroo Point
Hangover Bay and Kangaroo Point both renowned spots for fishing either from a boat of off the beach and is an excellent spot for snorkeling. With picnic tables, barbecues, shelter and toilets available it is the ideal location for a fun day out.
A scenic walk along the track between the Thirsty Point Lookout and Hanson Bay Lookout before relaxing over a lobster lunch and a glass of wine. PERFECT!
The boats of the Cervantes Lobster fishing fleet are generally moored in Ronsard Bay, a natural harbour formed by scattered coral encrusted rock reef. There is a common-user jetty in the bay where the boats of the lobster fishing fleet load and unload. There is also a public boat launching ramp there, to the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike.
Cervantes has a lot to offer everyone, so come and unwind in our peaceful, relaxed fishing town.
