Kalbarri, a 6 hour drive north of Perth on Western Australia’s Coral Coast is a beautiful, friendly holiday destination. Visitors come to enjoy an amazing array of land and sea-based activities. Kalbarri is a true adventurer’s paradise with tours offering canoeing and quad biking to horse riding and abseiling! For those seeking a more relaxed experience, you can take a scenic flight over this magnificent area or explore the many waterways brimming with wildlife.
This resort town is located at the mouth of the Murchison River where Kalbarri tours take visitors to explore the natural marvels of Kalbarri National Park and beyond - from traversing the rugged Coastal Cliffs, swimming at the pristine beaches, or hiking through rocky gorges. The wild pelicans are a daily attraction, as are the resident dolphins and during whale migration season, you can see these gentle giants just off the coastline.
Take an epic road trip like no other along Western Australia’s stunning and diverse coastline. From Broome’s iconic Cable Beach, through the mining hubs of Port Hedland and Karratha to eco cruises on pristine Ningaloo Reef and Monkey Mia. From Kalbarri National Park to the mysterious Pinnacles and onto Perth and intriguing Rottnest Island. WA is filled with adventure, come and see...
On a grander scale, Kalbarri National Park is one of the most spectacular national parks in Western Australia. Covering over 183,000 hectares, its landscape is also one of the most varied and a host of guided tours help you enjoy the many wonders of the park.
Coastal Cliffs provide a stunning backdrop as they plummet 100 metres to the crashing waves below and from July to October each year, Kalbarri and the surrounding areas burst into the brightness of wildflowers. In contrast, a cruise along the serene Murchison River is a wonderful way to view Kalbarri’s dramatic scenery.
Along with its dramatic coastal cliffs, spectacular beaches, and peaceful river, Kalbarri has many sights to take your breath away. When it comes to adventure you can go grand or start small or choose something in between.
One of the sweetest experiences happens each morning at Kalbarri’s foreshore around 08:45 where local volunteers feed the wild pelicans. Apparently, the tradition began when a local fisherman decided to clean his catch there, throwing the ‘leftovers’ to the eager pelicans. They’ve been returning every morning since, much to the delight of residents and visitors.
