Kalbarri National Park

Location: Ajana-Kalbarri Road, Kalbarri

Kalbarri National Park

The gorges and formations carved by the Murchison River attract thousands of visitors to Kalbarri National Park every year. Short walks provide easy access to spectacular lookouts.

Nature’s Window

A 1km return walk from The Loop car park brings you to one of WA’s most iconic natural attractions. This natural rock arch frames the river perfectly and is the main photograph opportunity in Kalbarri National Park. For an unforgettable gorge adventure, follow the 8km Loop Walk Trail beginning and ending at Nature’s Window.

Z-Bend

Considered by many to offer the most breathtaking view in the park, the Z-Bend lookout can be reached by a 1.4km return walk from the car park. Gazing down, the gorge plunges 150 metres to the river below where river redgums create a striking contrast against the earthy Tumblagooda sandstone.

Hawk’s Head

This top picnic spot has a brand new lookout over the Murchison River gorge, complete with a wheelchair-accessible path.

Ross Graham Lookout

This spot offers the easiest access point in Kalbarri National Park, with a short walking trail from the car park leading you to the shaded and tranquil river’s edge.

Description

National Park - Coastal Cliffs

Extending 13km to the south of town, Kalbarri National Park also boasts some of WA’s most striking coastal landscapes, secluded beaches, surf breaks and whale watching spots. Take a short drive, or follow the walk & cycle path that hugs the coast.

Red Bluff

A paved 1km return walk takes you to the lookout where panoramic ocean views from the top of 100m cliffs make it a perfect vantage point for spotting marine creatures, from dolphins to migrating humpback whales. At its base lies one of Kalbarri’s most popular beaches for swimming, snorkeling and fishing. You can take the 1.8km return walk to the beach, the way is steep and rocky but well worth the effort.

Mushroom Rock Walk Trail

Marvel at the varied geological formations that are ablaze with colour at sunset. A visit at dawn or dusk will also reward you with glimpses of kangaroos grazing on the coastal heath. Allow an hour to explore the marked trail that connects Rainbow Valley and Mushroom Rock.

Pot Alley

The view south from the car park captures the rugged beauty of Kalbarri National Park’s remarkable coastline. Follow the rocky path to the bottom and explore a hidden beach all to yourself.

Eagle Gorge

Enjoy the panorama from the lookout or wander down into the depths of the gorge, where you’ll discover a secluded beach. Watch as eagles soar in the skies above, catching the updrafts and searching for prey.

Island Rock and Natural Bridge

The forces of the ocean have sculpted some rather precarious rock formations in the cliffs at the southern edge of Kalbarri National Park. Take in the spectacular views from the safety of the lookouts. The boardwalk is a 1.7km return easy stroll along the cliff edge with resident Dolphin pods all year round and Whales in season.
