Karijini National Park

Karijini National Park in Australia’s North West is all about adventure.

It’s about exploring ancient rocky tunnels and plunging gorges, paddling through crystal-clear waterways and swimming under stunning waterfalls. And the best bit? Its most amazing scenery is all within easy reach.

As you stand amongst the ancient geological formations of Karijini National Park, you feel awestruck at the red layered cliffs that line the spectacular gorges eroded by nature over billions of years. The Pilbara’s gum trees, termite mounds and expansive plains give way to picturesque gorges, refreshing waterfalls and the emerald waterholes of Karijini National Park. A soothing oasis of trees and ferns provide shady refuge as you explore the wonders of this Western Australian national park.

How to get to Karijini National Park

Situated just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, travellers can access the park from KarrathaTom Price or Newman via sealed and unsealed roads. Qantas provides daily flights to the town of Paraburdoo, just 100 kilometres from Karijini National Park.

The ideal time to visit Karijini National Park is during Australia’s late autumn, winter and early spring. The days are warm but the nights are cold.  The water in the gorge pools can be very cold between April and September.

Traditionally the home of the Banyjima, Kurrama and Innawonga people, the word Karijini is the Banyjima name for Hamersley Range.
