Kalbarri Skywalk (Kaju Yatka) are twin skywalks at the Inyaka Wookai Watju site (the West Loop), 35 minutes from the town of Kalbarri. The two cantilevered viewing platforms are 17 metres and 25 metres long, 100 metres apart, and hang in mid-air 100 metres above the Murchison River Gorge with stunning views across Kalbarri National Park.
A world-class tourist attraction and a must-see for visitors to Kalbarri National Park, Kalbarri Skywalk offers an amazing experience. A walk out on the twin skywalks gives the feeling of floating on air. The Aboriginal name for Kalbarri Skywalk is Kaju Yatka and the platforms were inspired by the region's indigenous heritage and beauty.

From Kalbarri Skywalk jutting out beyond the rim of the Murchison River Gorge, you can take in magnificent views of the dense bushland, flowing waters, and the gorge’s rust-red cliffs. You can also learn about the local Nanda people.
Several First Nation local artists created interpretive signage and artwork at the Skywalk, telling the Nanda people’s story and forming an important part of the Kalbarri Skywalk experience. Visitors can discover how the 400-million-year-old sandstone gorge was formed and learn about the fossils found in the area.
There are beautiful Australian native animal sculptures and artwork depicting Nanda Dreamtime stories. One of these, the Beemarra serpent is sandblasted into the path to guide visitors. Near the Kalbarri Skywalk entrance, there are message sticks welded along with Aboriginal art to form a forest. Next to the skywalk, a kiosk supports the Nanda people by selling artwork and souvenirs and providing them with opportunities for training and employment.
Kalbarri National Park is in the mid-west region of Western Australia, 485 kilometres north of Perth. Covering an area of over 183,000 hectares, the park is one of the most secluded, yet spectacular in Western Australia attracting visitors to over 14 remarkable sites.
An inland trail takes hikers through the 400-million-year-old red and white sandstone gorges, some of which can be seen from Kalbarri Skywalk. It’s not unusual to spot kangaroos, emus, echidnas, and a wide variety of birds including the majestic wedge-tailed eagle.
Along the coast, 100-metre cliffs have been worn away by wind and wave erosion and offer stunning views of the rugged coastline. From July to October, Kalbarri and surrounding areas burst into a blanket of colours with over 1,000 wildflower species covering the area.
The township of Kalbarri, just a short drive from Kalbarri Skywalk welcomes tourists to enjoy its ideal weather, beaches, fishing, and whale-watching.
The two skywalks extend an imposing 17 metres and 25 metres over the edge of the Murchison Gorge with a 100-metre drop, giving visitors incredible views over Kalbarri National Park. The walk to reach Kalbarri Skywalk is 300 metres return and the path is flat and easy.
Kalbarri is in the Yamaji region of Western Australia and is part of the traditional land of the Nanda people. At the entrance to the Skywalk, ‘Kaju Yatka’ are Nanda words meaning ‘sky’ and ‘to walk,’ an apt description of this magnificent structure.
Kalbarri Skywalk opened in June 2020 at a cost of $24 million. The project received wide-ranging input and employed 150 people including 10 Aboriginal people. A Geraldton-based architectural company designed the striking attraction, with its two cantilevered steel walks jutting dramatically out from the rim of the Murchison Gorge.
