Kalbarri is a resort town at the mouth of the Murchison River, on Western Australia's coast. It’s known for its seaside cliffs, estuary beach and wild pelicans. Nearby Kalbarri National Park are rocky gorges like the iconic Z Bend, named for a sharp bend in the river. The park’s coast is home to resident dolphins and seasonal humpback whales, seen from a boardwalk beside the Island Rock and Natural Bridge rock forms.
The Kalbarri region is a perfect family holiday destination also known for its adventure experiences on the water and land-based attractions. Situated where the Murchison River meets the Indian Ocean, Kalbarri has soaring river and coastal gorges and protected swimming bays like Blue Holes.
The Tumblagooda Sandstone (approximately 541 million years old) is one of Kalbarri National Park's most striking features - the layers of coloured rock bed, trace fossils and ancient insect footprints of euthycarcinoids (an extinct group of arthropod or scorpion-like insects) are quite remarkable.
The most iconic location in Kalbarri is the Nature's Window, a natural rock arch framing the River. The National Park offers superb hiking trails, quad biking, canoeing and kayaking river-ways, abseiling and lookouts and from July to October each year, over 800 species of wildflowers create an awe-inspiring display.
Just south of Kalbarri is Port Gregory, home of Hutt Lagoon (Western Australia's Pink Lake) and Horrocks, a laidback beach getaway with great swimming, fishing, surfing and windsurfing.
Head inland to Northampton - one of the oldest settlements in Western Australia, outside of Perth - the town was classified as a historic location by the National Trust of Australia in 1993 and is home to Oakabella Homstead.
