We came to this town, with its picturesque location on the estuary of the Murchison River, to discover that is was an ideal playground for all types of water sports such as swimming, kayaking, fishing or snorkelling in the aqua blue waters. Not only this, but we also discovered that the Kalbarri National Park, covering a staggering 186,000 hectares, was a short drive out of the town. The park has plenty to offer so we were dying to get out there to explore some of the deep Murchison River gorges.
If you are a more adventurous and experienced walker, you can embark on a hike starting and ending at Nature’s Window. The 8 km loop track takes you through moderate to challenging terrain with spectacular scenery from the rim of the gorge.
At less than 600 kms north of Perth, Kalbarri National Park is achievable for those who would maybe like to experience some of Australia’s rugged countryside, rather than trek to North Western Australian and The Kimberley to see similar terrain. I was completely blown away by the magnitude and the splendour of these wonderful river gorges and Kalbarri town is a pretty little spot to idle away a few days or even a week.
