Karijini National Park

TIME : 2016/2/18 9:13:17

The narrow, breathtaking gorges, hidden pools and spectacular waterfalls of Karijini National Park form one of WA's most impressive attractions. Adventurers and nature lovers flock to the rocky, red ranges and deep, dark chasms, home to abundant wildlife and over 800 different plant species

Kangaroos, snappy gums and wildflowers dot the spinifex plains, rock wallabies cling to sheer cliffs and endangered olive pythons lurk in giant figs above quiet pools. The park also contains WA's three highest peaks: Mt Meharry, Mt Bruce and Mt Frederick.

Banyjima Dr, the park's main thoroughfare, connects with Karijini Dr at two entrance stations. The eastern access is closest to the visitor centre and Dales Gorge. Take extra care driving as tourist roll overs are common. Avoid driving at night.

Choose walks wisely, dress appropriately and never enter a restricted area without a certified guide. Avoid the gorges during and after rain, as flash flooding does occur.
