Blessed with year-round great weather, unique river, coastal and inland gorge landscapes, Kalbarri is a favourite WA holiday destination for all types of travellers.

The majestic coastline boasts crystal clear swimming beaches, reefs to snorkel and explore, as well as awesome surf breaks. Dolphins and whales frequent the coastal fringes, with scenic lookouts and walk trails along the towering sea cliffs, which allow everyone the chance to experience this beautifully rugged part of the WA coast. The inland river gorges offer the chance to completely immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Awe‑inspiring 400 million-year-old rock formations make up the secluded landscape here, which is absolutely breathtaking while offering an abundance of native wildlife.

Enjoy scenic gorge views from above or hike down into the riverbed of the gorge. In season, the vast sand plains burst to life with over 1000 species of Wildflowers, which can be seen throughout the National Park and town surrounds with ease. On arrival make your first stop at the Visitor Centre on the main waterfront street where friendly local staff will be happy to help you make the most of your visit to our spectacular town. Do your favourite thing or try something new… you will find it all here in Kalbarri, the jewel of Western Australia’s Coral Coast.

6 Reasons to visit Kalbarri

1 – Kalbarri National Park - located just out of town, this National Park is a true wonder and not like any you may have seen before! Starting with the iconic Skywalk, the newest edition to the park, you’ll get a bird’s eye view over the stunning gorge and surrounding landscape. With its many hiking trails and lookouts, you can take in the park from many angles, including the popular trail to Natures Window. Take a trail that leads you down to the Murchison River for a quick dip to cool off on a hot day. During the months of Aug – Oct you have an extra bonus, as the park comes alive with beautiful wildflowers. We love seeing the carpets of white everlastings!

2 – Lucky Bay  - This is a true hidden gem. With a reef located only 50 meters off the shore providing a haven for snorkelers and fishermen alike. It’s 4WD entry only and a great day trip from Kalbarri or the perfect place for those that like to camp close to the beach.
