We reached Moora and stayed in their wonderful, free RV camp in the centre of town. This is directly opposite their IGA Supermarket and Celebrations Liquor Store. We shopped extensively at each of these businesses and also had a new tyre fitted to the caravan at the local Hankook Franchise. The town did OK out of our visit just by providing a free overnight stay. Great thinking I would say!
It was only a short drive to Cervantes and then South to Numbung Station, where we planned to stay for a few days. It was only when we got to Numbung Station that we learned that we could access Nambung National Park through the back boundary fence of this property. Brian, the Station Owner, escorted us and a family, that was staying in The Bed and Breakfast area of the Station, to the unofficial entrance into the National Park. This is the very same National Park that is accessed from Cervantes to the North but with many more Limestone Pinnacles here than are viewable from the Cervantes entry. The Sand Dunes move 10 or more metres per year. This means that some Pinnacles are covered with sand and others become exposed. If you came back here every couple of years the view would be totally different.
The sand around these Limestone Pinnacles has been deeply scoured to reveal quite large stone formations.
Climb over another dune and more Pinnacles come into view.
Keep walking and the more Pinnacles that you will discover. Must remember your line of travel though for your return trek. It all appears the same out here!

Still another formation of Pinnacles.
Not sure whether these Pinnacles are going under or being exposed!

The Fire Pit, consisting of a loop of old 'dozer tracks, circled with a high fence to keep the chill winds at bay.
