Enjoy Western Australia's National Parks

Purnululu National Park

PurnululuThe Bungle Bungle range in the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park is one of Western Australia's most fascinating landmarks and the ultimate place for outback adventure.
Here you camp out under the stars, four wheel drive across rugged terrain and hike through gorges millions of years old. The area in the East Kimberley region also has great Indigenous cultural significance which dates back 20,000 years.


From the air, the Bungle Bungle range is an awesome site, rising 300 metres out of the plain. The orange and black stripes of these massive sandstone structures are breathtaking best seen from above in a scenic flight. As you sweep over the range, a hidden world of gorges and pools is revealed with fan palms clinging to walls and crevices in the rocks.


The park covers nearly 240,000 hectares. Despite being made of soft sandstone the range has survived for more than 350 million years. Tours, including scenic flights, are available from Kununurra and Broome.
Camping in Western Australia's natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online.

Windjana National Park

WindjanaWindjana Gorge National Park in the Kimberley region offers stunning bushwalking through the outback wilderness.

The walls of Windjana Gorge rise up from floodplain of Lennard River, reaching 100 metres high in places.


Take a dip in refreshing permanent water holes and feel the power of Mother Nature which carved out the gorge over hundreds of millions of years. A three and a half kilometre easy walking trail winds through the gorge – you’ll see primeval life forms fossilised within the gorge walls. Keep an eye out for birds, fruit bats and fresh water crocodiles.


Windjana Gorge National Park is about a two hour drive from Derby and is best visited during the mild weather conditions between May and September. Camping in Western Australia's natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online.

You can take a cruise along the river to see the gorge and wildlife up close – and learn about Aboriginal Dreamtime stories of the area. Geikie Gorge is an important Aboriginal cultural area and is known by the Bunaba people as Darngku.


The national park covers more than 3,000 hectares of land and is also home to a riverine forest of river red gum trees and paper barks. Some areas are covered with wild passionfruit vine. Pack a picnic and enjoy the tranquillity of the wilderness, or go bushwalking along two dedicated trails.

Tunnel Creek National Park

Tunnel Creek National ParkA visit to the Tunnel Creek National Park is a truly unique experience that you must include on your Kimberley itinerary. It is close to Windjana Gorge, allowing you to see both landmarks in one day.

The tunnel is the oldest cave system in Western Australia. You will get to see little waterfalls coming over the ledges on the sides, and huge stalactites dangling from the ceilings. It is not far off the beaten track, and you don’t need a four wheel drive to get there, but you do need a torch!


The Tunnel Creek National Park is half way between Derby and Fitzroy Crossing. Allow at least two hours to get there from either direction. Flights run between Perth and Broome, Derby or Kununurra. Drive yourself or join one of the many fantastic overland tour groups visiting the area. Entry is restricted during the wet season.

Kalbarri National Park

KalbarriOver 183,000 hectares of outback adventures, dramatic gorges and dazzling wildflowers make Kalbarri National Park one of Western Australia's most popular places to visit. The seaside town of Kalbarri is a six and a half hour drive north of Perth, or you can fly there in just two hours. You'll also find Kalbarri National Park on the itineraries of many tours departing from Perth.


Go bushwalking, gorge hiking or canoeing and take a journey back 400 million years, when the tidal flats of an ancient sea formed the striking red sandstone and the mighty Murchison River carved out deep gorges on its way to the ocean.


For a more relaxed and equally breathtaking experience, drive out to the park's many lookouts for some must-snap vistas, including the famous Nature's Window, The Loop, Z Bend, Hawkes Head and Ross Graham, Red Bluff and Pot Alley.


To see the park ablaze with the colours of spring, visit between July and October. Over 1,100 varieties of wildflowers are found here, from Grevilleas to feather flowers. You're also likely to encounter an abundance of bird life and, although most native mammals are nocturnal, you can sometimes see kangaroos and emus during the day.

Ningaloo Marine Park

Ningaloo Marine ParkUNESCO World Heritage listed Ningaloo Marine Park is where you'll find the world's largest fringing reef, the Ningaloo Reef - 300 kilometres of biodiversity reaching from Red Bluff to Exmouth, and just a short swim from the shore in many places.


Flights from Perth get you to nearby Learmonth airport in two and a half hours. Alternatively, you can make the two day drive from Perth to Coral Bay or Exmouth, or join an extended guided tour.


Slip on a snorkel or jump aboard a diving tour for face-to-fin encounters with some 500 species of fish, manta rays and turtles, as you glide over 200 varieties of coral. If you'd prefer to stay dry, glass-bottom boat tours offer a window to this underwater world.


Just beyond the reef lies one of the best places on Earth for a swim with the largest fish in the ocean, the gentle whale shark. They're regular visitors between March and late July, and from June to November, you can watch the humpback whales make their annual migration too.


Not surprisingly, the fishing is top-notch too, with tuna, marlin and sailfish the prized catches. Fish the designated beach zones or join a fishing charter.
