While the rest of Australia may quiet down as we say goodbye to summer, there’s one outstanding location that awakens to welcome you to its rocky surface and rich, red exterior. Karijini is the go-to for activity and adventure in Australia, but, as summers can be unbearably hot in the northwest, it’s only accessible between March and October.
During these months you can really appreciate the rugged beauty of the park, where the red dirt meets the bright blue sky, and the odd pool or gorge beckons you to have a relaxing soak. This is also a great place to appreciate Western Australia’s history and culture, with millions of years old rock formations, carvings and traditions of the local Banyjima Aboriginal people.
A tour through Karijini really takes you back to basics. The sights and views will also make you forget all about your favourite TV shows, with sweeping views of the outback from Oxers Lookout and Joffre Falls Lookout, beautiful waterfalls gushing down rocky chasms, and hundreds of species of bird, amphibians and reptiles to look out for – not to mention wallabies and dingoes.
Despite being one of Australia’s last true wildernesses, Karijini is remarkably easy to get to in the cooler months.
Book a seat with Integrity Coach Lines and enjoy the freedom of hopping on and off as you make your way up the Western Australian coast.
With summer coming to an end, head north to this adventure paradise and experience Karijini and all that it holds.
