Commenced our stay in Karijini NP at the Dales Camp Ground before a walk through Dales Gorge, Fern Pool, Fortescue Falls and Circular Pool. A trip to the visitors’ centre and then the beautiful Kalamina Gorge. A short 4WD to the Karijini Eco Retreat and we experienced the delights of the Weano Gorge, however our highlights were the Hancock and Joffre Gorges. Both are classed as level 4/5 walks, requiring quite a deal of clambering over and around sheer rock faces. Adrenaline was certainly pumping in some spots.
We have been taken by the beauty of the Pilbara, having expected it to be somewhat flat and uninteresting. How wrong we were. The spectacular gorges here, should be experienced by climbing through them, however a sense of their majesty can be gained from the lookouts that are dotted throughout the park. Truly a special experience. Off now to the highest point in WA, Tom Price.
