The Kalbarri Skywalk

A couple of weeks ago I took the family including five of my grandkids to Kalbarri for a day trip. Without doubt, the highlight was the new Skywalk.

It is stunning. Brilliantly built to complement the environment it provides spectacular views of the Murchison Gorge. The fact that it is wheelchair accessible, is sensitive to the local indigenous people and highlights the local flora and fauna, just make it that much more special! Below is an extract from their website. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss it!!

(Raffle won by Woody XL with the 4 of hearts!)

 

Venture beyond the edge of a 100m drop for spectacular views over Kalbarri National Park. .

Perched right on the cliff-top, two 100-metre-high lookouts project 25 and 17 metres beyond the rim of the Murchison Gorge.

My family enjoying the view!

Visitors can venture out on the skywalks and enjoy incredible views of the spectacular gorge and surrounding environment. 

Learn about the traditional owners ‘Nanda’ heritage and culture through interpretive signage and artwork. Discover local fauna statues, fossils and geolocation information on the 400 million year old sandstone that makes these gorges. 

Pathways are flat and level to the Skywalk, toilets and shelters for easy access for people with prams and wheelchairs. There is also undercover seating and a kiosk.  

Roads are sealed. Park entry fees apply.  

Drinking water can be purchased during kiosk operation times. Take plenty of water on all walking trails within the park.
