Kalbarri

Kalbarri marks the end of our journey across central and north western Australia. Our arrival coincides with the wildflower season, where spectacular displays of colour blanket heathlands, rocky gorges and coastal parks. Sitting at the mouth of the Murchison River, Kalbarri is surrounded by the Kalbarri National Park. While there we walked the gorges and river banks of Nature’s Window Loop Hike and explored the coastal cliffs from Island Rock to Red Bluff. The Blue Holes beach and Chinaman’s Rock provided great views of the town and its beaches. The traditional owners of this beautiful landscape are the Nanda. As we left Kalbarri, we passed the Pink Lake before joining the highway homeward bound.
