The Pinnacles of Balcatta
28 February 09
After my big trip to Wave Rock, I couldn’t afford to give any more time to sightseeing in rural Western Australia, so I was delighted when Manou told me I could see the Pinnacles without actually driving three hours to the north. The Balcatta Pinnacles were unearthed when excavations at a local school in the 1930s revealed the stone pillars.
On Friday when Craig asked me if there was anything I still wanted to do in Perth, I didn’t hesitate to say that I wanted to see these magnificent stone columns. Although these pinnacles are much fewer than the ones up north, I was still pleased to photograph a Western Australian icon.
