Cervantes #1

In order to do my two recent tours of The Pinnacles, I stayed in the nearby town of Cervantes, a popular fishing and holiday spot on the coast. Cervantes was established in 1962 when the Government removed 505 hectares of land from the northwest corner of Nambung National Park to establish the town which has now become the ‘Gateway to the Pinnacles’. The town site took its name from the three Cervantes Islands where the American Whaling Ship ‘Cervantes’ was wrecked off the coast on 29 June 1844. Features of Cervantes include spectacular pristine beaches showcasing the beautiful turquoise ocean where visitors can enjoy many water activities. This is Cervantes as captured by my camera prior to the Sunset Tour of The Pinnacles on Day One of my visit.
