Kalbarri is a great little beach town with areas of magnificent geological beauty close by. As it is only 6 hours north of Perth, it’s a favourite for a getaway! We found that to be the case recently when there was absolutely no accommodation available in Kalbarri during the school holiday period. The accommodation during the school holidays was booked out months in advance as the pandemic has restricted interstate and overseas travel and a recent severe storm had damaged a large number of the hotel/motel type accommodation.
When visiting Kalbarri, exploring the Kalbarri National Park is essential. The Kalbarri Skywalk is an amazing piece of cantilevered infrastructure and the views are spectacular.
In my opinion, the highlight of Kalbarri is this rock formation called Nature’s Window. It’s a popular spot for a photo as it does make for a stunning shot with the layered sandstone and the backdrop of the rugged Murchison River. It’s quite busy and there could be a small wait as visitors take turns to get their photo in this iconic location.
