Kalbarri National Park

Kalbarri National Park covers almost 192000ha with features including the spectacular Murchison River Gorge.
Located on the lower reaches of the Murchison River which has cut magnificent red and white banded gorges for 80km as it carves its way to the sea. 
The banded rock of the gorge is called Tublagooda Sandstone and was deposited in sedemantary layers during the Silurian age over 400 million years ago. 
Ancient trace fossils in the sandstone reveal the first signs of terrestrial life on the planet and can be seen at many places in the gorge, including Nature’s Widow.
We got there a bit late and the weather was bad, so we didn’t do the 9km walk. We just went to see Nature’s Window, a big rock with a hole in the middle that looks over the river.


It was beautiful there. Only annoying things were the flies! So many ruddy flies! They wouldn’t leave us alone!

The jeep also kept skidding on the gravel roads! Even the boys (who were following) were scared for me!!

Then, back on the road again...

...and camping again...
