The seaside town of Kalbarri is a 6.5-hour drive north of Perth. You'll also find Kalbarri National Park on the itineraries of many tours departing from Perth.
Go bushwalking, gorge hiking or canoeing and take a journey back 400 million years, when the tidal flats of an ancient sea formed the striking red sandstone and the mighty Murchison River carved out deep gorges on its way to the ocean.
For a more relaxed and equally breathtaking experience, drive to the park's many lookouts for some must-snap vistas, including the famous Nature's Window, The Loop*, Z Bend*, Hawks Head and Ross Graham, Red Bluff and Pot Alley.
For the wildflower season, visit between July and October. Over 1,100 varieties of wildflowers to see, from Grevilleas to feather flowers.
*The road into Nature's Window and the Z Bend have recently been sealed allowing access to all types of vehicles (except caravans and vehicles under tow).
