Beautiful Kalbarri

A lovely afternoon in the Kalbarri National Park East of Kalbarri.  These are the inland gorges on the Murchison River with rock formations as old as 400 million years.  The Murchison River starts its journey in the ancient range lands near Meekathara before feeding into the Indian Ocean at Kalbarri.

The Z-Bend Lookout gives views of the 150m plunge to the river below and highlights the red river gums against the striking colours of the Tumblagooda sandstone.  Nature’s Window is a rock arch which frames the section of the river called The Loop.  We didn’t leave the area until after five so had the opportunity to greet a couple of kangaroos on the road on the way back.  Like all of their brethren, they have suicidal tendencies.
