Kalbarry National Park

One of our first stops was the Kalbarry National Park 650km north of Perth. We spent a full day hiking and stopping along the coast to see the beautiful red sandstone cliffs and dramatic waves crashing on the shore. There were many incredible natural rock formations and a sky full of shifting clouds. Our second day we went to see the canyons and desert of the inland part of the park. We viewed the massive gorges from above and from the river below on an 8km hike through the park. There were black swans, kangaroos, strange lizards and colourful parrots all through the walk. We were marooned that night because all the gas stations closed at 6:00pm but were on the road the next day to cross the vast and very flat shrub land of Western Australia.
