What is the Skywalk and when will it be open?
Breathtaking skywalks in Kalbarri National Park will become a major tourism drawcard for the region, providing stunning vistas of the Murchison River gorge's rust-red cliffs, flowing water and scrub from above.
Work on the new Kalbarri Skywalk has commenced with the official launch estimated for early 2018. Kalbarri National Park, which is famous for its exceptional wildflowers, sandstone cliffs and variety of recreational activities, saw over 370,000 visitors in the 2016/17 financial year. By improving access and infrastructure, the park's unique environment will be showcased to encourage more tourists to explore the town and wide Coral Coast region's natural heritage.
The innovative tourism precinct in the park will include twin skywalks which will be built 100m apart at the Inyaka Wookai Watju site (the West Loop) which will project 20m and 12m beyond the gorge rim, more than 100m above the Murchison River. Works already completed include the sealing of the Loop/Z Bend Road which has previously been accessible only by 4WD and all-wheel-drive cars. This road sealing will allow access to some of Kalbarri's popular tourist segment – the RV market which comprises of both grey nomads and families.
There will be the complete redevelopment of the existing Z Bend lookout with parking for coaches, a kiosk, walking trails, interpretative signage, shade shelters and toilets. The skywalks will be accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
