Cervantes takes its name from the shipwreck of the Spanish vessel, Cervantes, off the coast of the Indian Ocean. This tiny fishing town, standing north of Perth in Western Australia, serves as an overnight stopover for a great many travelers on their way to the region’s national parks and beautiful beaches. The Nambung National Park, which houses the Pinnacles Desert with its ancient rock pillars and sand dunes, is easily accessible from Cervantes. Vacationers seeking adventure sports can try out the sandboarding opportunities at the Pinnacles. Other national parks in the vicinity are the Badgingarra National Park, the heaths of Lesueur National Park and the Kwongan wildflowers. The nearby Lake Thetis with its ancient marine fossils is a nature lover’s delight. Known for its commercial crayfish and lobster industry, the town offers quite a few local eateries and pubs serving deliciously fresh seafood.
