Located on the Murchison River and surrounded by the Kalbarri National Park, Kalbarri is located 589kms north of Perth. As a result, Kalbarri is one of the most popular tourist towns in the Coral Coast region. There are coastal gorges, river gorges and the magnificent Murchison River, all of which will captivate visitors. Pack your car, book a few days or a weeks holiday, bring your camera and plan a stay.
Things to do in and around Kalbarri
Kalbarri has attractions both land based and on the water and for wildflower lovers you wont find anywhere better in Australia than Kalbarri National Park. From July until late November the park is transformed into a mosaic of colour with over 800 species of West Australian native wildflowers. Daily Pelican feeding ( around 8.45AM… )is always a great way to learn more about our friendly town from our helpful volunteers.
Whilst you are here why not enjoy Chinamans Beach? Sheltered from afternoon sea breezes swimming and sun bathing is enjoyable. Try your luck fishing at the river mouth with a wheelchair accessible platform for those in need. An early morning snorkel at the Blue Holes is a must. Blue Holes is a designated fish habitat, so fishing here is not allowed. However its an ideal swimming location for the children with calm waters and shallow pools. Watch the surfers at Jakes Point when the swell is just right.

Walk along the 8 Kilometre Bigurda Trail and explore the rugged coastal cliffs. A sunset cruise with Reefwalker Charters is also a superb way to end the day. In addition a visit to the Murchison River gorges by car, tour bus or air charter is a must. Coming soon in 2017 is the new Kalbarri Skywalk at the West Loop site.
In addition the whales, wildflowers, fishing, sand boarding, quad bike tours, abseiling, canoe safaris etc provide a little something for everyone to enjoy!
Take a river cruise up the Murchison River viewing the landscape from the water’s edge. Or experience the thrill of a guided quad bike safari tour along the river flats or along the coast.
There is so much more to see and do. Noteworthy are Rainbow Jungle including Paradisos outdoor picture theatre, whale watching, Murchison House Station, abseiling, fishing and much more..
