The 186,000 hectares of Kalbarri National Park encircle the coastal resort town of Kalbarri which is nestled into the mouth of the Murchison River. The inland river gorges with ancient rock formations to the north and towering ocean cliffs to the south provide a range of spectacular terrain that caters for both the simple holiday maker and experienced hikers. Roads to the popular Z-Bend, Skywalk, Loop and Nature's Window attractions are fully sealed and accessible.
The Kalbarri Skywalk comprises two cantilevered platform structures that will have you feeling like you're floating, as you take in breathtaking views of the Murchison River Gorge 100 metres below and its spectacular surroundings. A moderate 1-kilometre return walk will take you to the popular Nature's Window, a wind-eroded opening in the sandstone that frames a stunning view of the Murchison River.
To enter the area you will need to purchase a national park day pass from either the Kalbarri Visitor Centre, the WA Parks & Wildlife Headquarters, or at the fee station at the park entrance.
Temperatures in the river gorges can reach 50 degrees celsius during summer. Remember to carry your own drinking water as it is not available in the park. It is also recommended to wear long-sleeved, loose clothing and a hat, and to hike early in the morning or late afternoon.
