It took Mother Nature 2 billion years to carve the gorges, tunnels and rock pools that feature in Karijini National Park, Western Australia’s second largest national park but the wait was worth it, as is the drive to reach this remote but very special corner of Western Australia’s North West.

Karijini National Park is located in the Pilbara, some 600km east of Exmouth or 350km south of Port Hedland in WA’s Hamersley Range iron ore mining region. The distances here are great and many travellers opt for coach tours or 4WD safari tours that include Karijini as part of an itinerary of exploring the coast. Time and distance aside, this ancient gorge with its walls of red rock and crystal clear emerald coloured pools make the effort worthwhile.

The park’s deep gorges, slot canyons and waterfalls are easily accessible with a network of walking trails that lead to waterfalls and rock pools fed with underground springs. Paths lead underground to tunnels and hidden pools or up to lookouts across the various gorges. Visitors can beat the heat with a refreshing swim in the cool clear pools.
