Depending on the weather, the lagoon changes colour from light pink to a darker pink, sometimes even lilac and a deep purple.

- Tour Duration:From 1.5 Hours
- Tour Price:From $80
- Activity:Quad Biking
- Suited For:Teens (13 - 17),Adults (18+)
- Tour Locations:Safaris leave from Murchison House Station.
Our aim is that every customer is safe on safaris and has an unforgettable experience for all the right reasons.
Where do the quadbike safaris go?
License arrangements allow for safaris to tour through the Murchison River Reserve (town side of the river), and also onto the Murchison House Station Pastoral Lease, on the north side of the river. All safaris start from Murchison House Station, located 12km from Kalbarri on the Ajana-Kalbarri Road.
The terrain and scenery varies throughout the safari and is also influenced by the seasons.
How long are the safaris?
There are three safaris available: Mini adventure, Adventure and Maxi Adventure, and the duration is one hour, two hours, and four and a half hours respectively. The most popular safari is the two hour Adventure Safari which can either go to the River Reserve or the Murchison House Station Pastoral Lands. The Mini adventure safari gives people a taste of what it is like to ride a quadbike and takes in some beautiful scenery as well. The Maxi Adventure itinerary is flexible, but usually takes in both the River Reserve and the Station. These safaris are suitable for people who have never ridden a quadbike before.
Kalbarri Quadbike Safaris is also happy to arrange customized safaris, so please feel free to discuss your ideas.
Who will enjoy it?
Quadbike adventures can be enjoyed by people of all ages, experience and confidence. All bikes can seat two adults and children from as young as four can sit on the passenger seat.
The driver of the quadbike must have a drivers license and be at least 18 years old.
Quadbikes are dual seat CanAm Outlander Max 400cc, and have automatic gears. Everyone must wear a helmet.
Riders who are driving the quadbike must be able to sit upright, unsupported, and be able to flex their legs, that is, be able to sit astride on a chair. Riders need full use of their arms and hands. Passengers require a similar level of ability.
Each safari starts with instructions about the safe handling of the quadbike, and this is followed up by a familiarization ride, during which all riders are closely supervised. Safety is the priority, and riders are coached and encouraged during the initial phases of the safari. Of course, some people will take longer to feel confident that others, but it is surprising how quickly even the most nervous riders gain confidence and enjoy the whole experience.
Kalbarri Quadbike Safaris will appeal to individuals, couples, families, and corporate groups.
Refreshments are provided on each safari, and water is supplied. Customers are asked to wear sunglasses, shoes, long legged shorts or pants, sun and insect protection, and to bring their cameras. We may have time for a swim on longer safaris in the hot weather.
Bookings are essential, and advance bookings are recommended for peak times such as school holidays and long weekends. Contact Ellen and Martin on 99371011 any day.
The beautiful Murchison River gorges, Monkey Mia, Abrolhos Islands and coastal cliffs are spread out below you in style.
- Activity:Flying / Scenic Flights
- Type:Charters & Rentals
Since much of the Kalbarri Coastal region’s most pleasing scenery is inaccessible by road, our flights offer you the opportunity to witness the wonders of the Mid West at first hand from the best possible vantage point - the air!
A prime example of this is the Pink Lake to the south of Kalbarri – only clearly visible from the sky, the lake is a dramatic contrast to the surrounding landscape. Kalbarri is in fact the closest airport to both the Pink Lake and East Wallabi Island the Abrolhos Islands favourite tourist destination.
A holiday to the Coral Coast is not complete without a once in a lifetime visit to the stunning Abrolhos Islands scene of the Batavia Wreck and mutiny in 1629. There is so much to do after landing – picnic on the beach, dabble your toes into the clear blue water, or even enjoy the nature trail to the famous osprey's nest and back.
For those who are spellbound by the region's unique inland scenery, our flights include the spectacular, unforgettable Gorges of the Murchison River which were formed over 400 million years ago. For those who want a bit of everything, and the best of all worlds, why not try the Grand Tour?
Some of our Scenic Flights have minimum numbers, so to avoid disappointment when you arrive in the area it is advisable to book early. If you are ready to book your air charter today, please proceed to our Bookings page where you can book online. If you have questions about our flights or charters please call or email us using the contact details in the header.
We look forward to welcoming you on board soon!

Jakes Point is one of the states most famous remote surf breaks and is best ridden by the locals and experienced surfers.

Jakes Point is located 3km south of Kalbarri Town. The reef break offers a powerful, hollow left hander that breaks for up to 200m along a gnarly shelf. It is best suited to the experienced surfer as a drop gone wrong can often result in being washed up onto the ledge.
