Overview

Bandilngan (Windjana Gorge) National Park in the Kimberley region offers stunning bushwalking through the outback wilderness.

Rated as one of the most beautiful of all the gorges in this frontier region, Bandilngan is rich in vegetation and wildlife.

The walls of Bandilngan rise up from the floodplain of Lennard River, reaching 100 metres high in places.

A 3.5 kilometre easy walking trail winds through the gorge – you’ll see primaeval life-forms fossilised within the gorge walls. Keep an eye out for birds, fruit bats and freshwater crocodiles.

Bandilngan National Park is about a 2-hour drive from Derby and is best visited during the mild weather conditions between May and September.

Camping in Western Australia's natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online.
