Breathtaking twin skywalks in Kalbarri National Park boast stunning vistas of the Murchison River Gorge's rust-red cliffs, flowing water and bushland from high above.
Famous for its exceptional wildflowers, sandstone cliffs and variety of recreational activities, the National Park saw over 460,000 visitors in the 2019/20 financial year. By improving access and infrastructure, the Park's unique environment will be showcased to encourage more tourists to explore the town and wider Coral Coast region's natural heritage. Two Aboriginal Rangers are employed full time in Kalbarri National Park.
The innovative tourism precinct in the park includes the twin skywalks, built 100m apart at the Inyaka Wookai Watju site (the West Loop), which project 25m and 17m beyond the gorge rim, more than 100m above the Murchison River. The complete redevelopment of the existing West Loop Lookout includes parking for coaches, RVs/campervans, walking trails, interpretative signage, a kiosk, shade shelters and toilets.
The Skywalk kiosk conveniently serves food and drinks to visitors as they take in the views of the Murchison Gorge right next to the Kalbarri Skywalk. The kiosk is open from 7.30am to 2pm daily and offers casual dining, take away food, as well as hot and cold beverages. The catering company, 28 Villages, with the full support of the Nanda Aboriginal Corporation, will work together to explore opportunities for training and employment of Nanda people and the sale of Nanda artwork and souvenirs. This is a wonderful outcome that supports the strong relationship Parks and Wildlife Service and the Nanda Traditional Owners have developed over the past few years throughout the planning and development of the Kalbarri Skywalk project.
The Skywalk is accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
