Kennedy Range National Park is located 150 kilometres east of Carnarvon and extends for roughly 195 kilometres in a northerly direction towards the Gascoyne Hinterland. You will need a four-wheel drive to self-drive the park, or explore for the day with help from a local tour operator. Coach tours and helicopter flights are a unique way to explore the park.
If hiking or camping interest you then Kennedy Range National Park is not to be missed. The park offers a wilderness-style experience and the opportunity to get back to nature while camping beneath the stars and the stark sandstone cliffs of the Kennedy Range. The most popular site within the park is Honeycomb Gorge, a rock face formed by wind and water spray from a seasonal waterfall above the cliff-face. An intriguing feature which has created a mass of hexagonal holes leading to the "Honeycomb" name.
The best time to visit is during winter after good rains. At such times, the usually dusty red landscape bursts into bloom with a wide variety of delicate flowers and plants blanketing the National Park's ancient valleys.
