Located where the 80 kilometres of the Murchison River
hits the coast, Kalbarri is favoured by the more active holiday-maker.
Those who make the 580 km trek from Perth, experience a Kalbarri Gorge,
canoe down the river, and maybe combine that with a bit of rock
climbing, abseiling, bush walking and camping.
A visit during late
June to November, will reward you with spectacular colours, the
vivid red rocks, against a palate of blue skies and green bush. Also
at this time of year, the sand plain of the Kalbarri National Park
are a wash with hundreds of species of wildflowers.
For those less
active, you can always time your holidays to catch a glimpse of the
humpback whales on their seasonal migrations, both in winter and
spring. You can also catch a spot of fishing, or just relax with a
book on anyone of the great beaches.
