Pinnacle was gazetted as a town in 1902. Elsie Nash St and Eungella Road around to the Pinnacle Pub was once the Commercial area of town. Over the years it has boasted a Blacksmith, a portable Sawmill, two General Stores, Post Office, two halls, a Catholic Church which became the Uniting Church which is currently The Flackyard Restaurant. A Methodist Church became the Red Cross Hall which is currently Badila Art Centre. The museum closed in the 1990s. It had a train station with daily services to Mackay which in the early days carried students to Mackay State High School leaving here at 7am and arriving back at 5:30pm. Currently Pinnacle is home to the Art Centre, the Pinnacle Playhouse, the Pinnacle Cricket Club, Pinnacle Pub, the state school and an Electricity Depot.
