Stopped here on our way down to Wellington. Great scenic drive. The Pinnacles cover a huge area and take quite a bit of time to cover so plan accordingly. We had to cut our stay short and wish we could have seen more but what we did see was worth the effort.
What an amazing view and worth the effort. Not being fit I struggled at times but a great feeling to see the pinnacles. Not far from Cape Palliser and a must see on a clear day. Tracks are well maintained and an easy descent through the river bed.
Had driven past the pinnacles numerous times we decided today was the day. Turned out to be a great walk, but if your like me 50munble and a few steps ahead of a hart attack I wouldn't be put off there was two tracks one followed the ridge line with lots of steps in places and not a lot to... 更多
Always wanted to do this walk. It says it's an easy track but it does get a bit rough in places. There is not really any real track for the first part- from the carpark you pop out onto the streambed and basically make your own way up till you see a signpost. Then we chose to do the streambed... 更多

Was surprised as it took slightly longer than recommended time to walk in. No shelter on way in, very exposed. Take extra food and water if going with kids and... 更多

This is a really interesting walk. From the carpark, you follow the stream up to the Pinnacles themselves. It is a relatively easy walk and well worth the effort.
I decided we would do this walk before reading the reviews on here and then after I did I was a little sceptical that my children (and us unfit adults) would be able to do this walk. We took the riverbed track and my 2 year old and 5 year old both were able to walk this the whole way... 更多
It is a bit of a trek to the Pinnacles and quite exposed (hot in the sun) but once you are there the alien-like landscape is a wonder. Make a day of it and enjoy fish and chips at the reasonably nearby Lake Ferry Hotel.
