Scenic landscapes, wilderness, wildflowers, camping, walk trails, night skies, geology, bird watching and photography are some of the attractions.

The beautiful gorges and red rock landscape of the outback Kennedy Range National Park (known as ‘Mundatharrda’ to the local Inggarda Aboriginal language group) are about a two-hour drive east of Carnarvon.

A variety of bushwalking trails run from the eastern side day-use sites and camping area, leading to the honeycomb-like rock formations of the gorges.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has volunteer campground hosts based at the eastern side campground from May to September. Camping is available at Temple Gorge campground at the base of the eastern escarpment. Download a visitor map here.

Fees apply for vehicle entry to national parks.
