Description

Kalbarri National Park surrounds the lower reaches of the Murchison River, which has cut a magnificent 80km gorge through the red and white banded sandstone to create formations such as Nature’s Window and The Loop, Z-Bend and Hawks Head, with scenic gorge views at the Ross Graham Lookout and views of the town and river mouth at Meanarra Hill.

Kalbarri Skywalk

Perched right on the cliff-top, sits two 100m high lookouts, that project 25m and 17m beyond the rim of the Murchison Gorge. Visitors can venture out onto the new Kalbarri Skywalk and enjoy incredible views of the spectacular gorge and surrounding environment.

Soaring sea cliffs

Along the coast, wind and wave erosion has exposed the sedimentary layers in the sandstone cliffs that plunge more than 100m to the ocean. Red Bluff, Mushroom Rock, Rainbow Valley, Eagle Gorge, Island Rock and the Natural Bridge are among the best known features of this rugged coast.

Natural attractions

Kalbarri’s exceptional wildflowers are at their best in spring and early summer. At the mouth of the Murchison River is the town of Kalbarri, which supports thriving fishing and tourism industries and provides a base for park visitors.

Water-based fun

Kalbarri National Park is popular for sightseeing, picnicking, abseiling, rafting and canoeing (only after heavy rains and only if you are experienced, well equipped and have first contacted park rangers for advice).

It’s great to escape everyday life and visit a park or reserve in WA. It is also important to us that you return safely to your family and friends.

It is really important to plan when to visit. For your safety we have provided safety information about swimming, bushwalking, fishing, snorkelling and diving, paddling and kayaking, surfing and abseiling. Consider traveling with a personal location be

  • The Loop Trail is closed after 7am during the warmer months from November to March inclusive.
  • For overnight hikes, walk in a group of at least five experienced people - the smallest group considered self-sufficient in an emergency. Overnight groups must register before the hike either in person at Kalbarri Park Headquarters or via email. Longer/overnight hikes are not permitted during the warmer months (November to March).
