Multi Day Exploration - Karijini NP, Pilbara, Western Australia

Back to Map 

Visited: Early April

One of Australia's most beautiful outback red-rock gorge areas, with iron almost oozing unaided from the red rocks.. The deep gorges reward exploration on foot, with many idyllic swimming holes. Some routes are difficult, including the famous "Magic Mile", leading though narrow slot canyons. Trainers are best for negotiating the narrow-rock ledges, and you'll have to swim in places to proceed. Early April was dry (note the flash flood dangers) and sunny, with warm swimming.
