Drive back to Exmouth after breakfast and then fly 2 hrs south to Kalbarri. This is a coastal town in the mid west region of WA located at the mouth of the Murchison River. It is home of the Z Bend, Natures window rock formation. Kalbarri National Park covers 183,000 hectares and is located on the lower reaches of the Murchison River. Over many millions of years deep, horizontal bands of coloured sand were deposited. Today, this Tumblagooda sandstone can be seen as thinly bedded, red and white banded rocks, with ripples that were formed by waves moving over the tidal flats. The Park is home to western grey kangaroos, emus, ospreys and wedge-tail eagles.
Kalbarri was settled by miners and fishermen throughout the late 19th century. Until recently, few people lived in the area and it was known simply as the 'Mouth of the Murchison'. In the late 1960s people started to visit the area to see the wonderful wildflowers. Using a local tour operator you spend the 1.5 days touring the stunning park.
