A six and a half hour drive north of Perth will land you in Kalbarri National Park, one of WA’s most popular places for spectacular scenery and red rock gorges that were cut from the landscape by the mighty Murchison River, and wildflowers in season. This park offers a range of adventure activities like bush walking, gorge hiking and canoeing.

You can experience views of the gorges from one of the many lookouts including the famous Nature’s Window where the vista is seen through a massive red rock frame. The Loop, Z Bend, Hawkes Head Lookout and Ross Graham Lookout are also popular for views over the sandstone cliffs.

The park is rich in bird life (over 200 species) and other animals. Most native mammals are nocturnal, but you can sometimes see western grey kangaroos and emus during the day.

Kalbarri national park also takes in amazing coastal cliffs and gorges including Red Bluff and Pot Alley.

From July to October Kalbarri National Park is ablaze with colour as wildflowers like banksia, grevillea, kangaroo paw and feather flower spring to life.
