Visit Kalbarri National Park

View or download the National Park map here!

Kalbarri National Park covers an area of 186,000 hectares, the rugged terrain and relative seclusion of the park attracts thousands of visitors each year. The experienced hiker to the simple holiday maker are catered for with access to 14 different sites throughout the area.

The township of Kalbarri is encircled by two distinctly different landscapes. North east of town are inland river gorges with rock formations as old as 400 million years, the south features towering ocean cliffs plummeting to the waves below.

The roads to the coastal sites are sealed and suitable for all vehicles, except for Pot Alley which is not suitable for caravans or motor homes as the road is far too steep. The roads into the inland gorge sites at Hawk’s Head and Ross Graham are also sealed, and towing is allowed on these sites with large turn around bays and parking areas. There is interpretive signage along with shade shelters, toilets and picnic facilities scattered through the park. All the roads to the Z-Bend, Loop and Natures Window are fully sealed and accessible to all types of vehicles but no towing (caravans trailers boats etc) is allowed within this area. There is an unhitch bay just after the National Park Kiosk at the entrance of the park. Please remember there is no drinking water at any sites in the National Park so you must carry your own supply and if doing any longer hikes you will need 3 to 4 litres per person. 

There are no campgrounds in the National Park and camping is not permitted however overnight hikes can be done in the park but permission has to be give by the Parks and Wildlife Rangers before undertaking any overnight hikes. There is a Parks and Wildlife Office 2 kms from the town centre on Clotworthy Street where you can register or phone them on 99371140.

Please contact Kalbarri Visitor Centre for information on camping options around Kalbarri.

Pets are not permitted inside the Kalbarri National Park, and it is not allowed to leave them inside vehicles in the park, travelling to and from the townsite is of course fine on the main roads.

We’re pleased to advise the Skywalk lookouts and connecting walkways have been successfully installed in Kalbarri National Park. Landscaping works including stone slab cutting and stonemasonry continue with some concrete paths being laid.

Infrastructure works are in progress as follows:

  • The kiosk building has been constructed and the fit out is in progress
  • Toilet and shade structures are under construction
  • The Solar Power system tender has been awarded
  • The Skywalk carpark construction is expected to commence in February
  • Nanda artists have completed artwork designs and the artwork elements are currently being made.

Visitor interpretation:

  • Designs for the interpretation of Nanda heritage have been completed and signage is yet to be manufactured, sign frames are being made and geological interpretation is being designed.
  • Sculptures of local fauna are also being fabricated.

It is hoped that the Skywalk site will be open to the public in April 2020.
