Starting from the car park at the end of Ross Graham Road, Kalbarri National Park, this walk takes you past the Ross Graham Lookout, then down to the Murchison River and back. This area provides the easiest access point in the national park to the Murchison River. A short walking trail from the car park leads to the river's edge. It includes a lookout with spectacular panoramic views. The day-use area has toilets and a picnic shelter. If you visit in late July, you will be greeted by an abundance of colour as the wildflowers are in full bloom. The park is famous for its wildflowers and has several species that can only be seen here, such as the Kalbarri spider orchid and the Kalbarri catspaw, as well as other common species. Also, you may be lucky enough to see grey kangaroos and emus. Follow the path to the lookout, then continue down the path to reach the shady banks and tranquil pools of the Murchison River. The trail to the river is quite steep, with many rock steps. The trail becomes muddy and slick at the end of the track due to seepage, so care is required. For your safety, keep to the path and lookout. Keep an eye out for the undercut cliff edges and unstable footing. December to April can be very hot. Walk in the cooler parts of the day, and carry an adequate water supply. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park at the end of Red Bluff Lookout Road, Kalbarri, this walk takes you past Red Bluff Lookout, Mushroom Rock and Pot Alley. Enjoy amazing views over the ocean from the dramatic coastal cliffs of Red Bluff, read about the ancient fossils, and explore the relatively isolated beach at Pot Alley. The Red Bluff coastal cliffs were named by Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh in 1967. You can easily watch for the migrating humpback whales from here as the 100 metres high cliffs provide a panoramic angle of the ocean. After visiting Red Bluff Lookout, the hike heads over to the car park at the end of Mushroom Rock Road to start the Mushroom Rock Trail. The trail immediately descends to the coast along a purpose-built walk track, leading to Mushroom Rock and the Rainbow Valley gorge. The fascinating shape of Mushroom Rock has been created by the strong winds and water eroding away the rock over many years. Informational signposts along the trail reveal heaps of information about the flora and fauna of the area and more. Even though the track is quite straightforward by itself, there are directional signposts all along. After visiting Mushroom Rock, you'll head along some coastal cliffs, accompanied by the waves crashing into the rocks below you. Later on, you'll get to an intersection. The track to the right takes you to Rainbow Valley Road, from where the hike continues to Pot Alley. Pot Alley is a picturesque ocean gorge boasting spectacular ocean scenery amidst the expansive rugged gorges. As with the rest of the Kalbarri National Park coastline, Pot Alley faces west, which is ideal for viewing amazing sunsets. You can have a swim here and enjoy the refreshing ambience for a bit. Stay on the trail and look out for slippery/loose rocks as well as steep parts. Take extra care when it's windy. The water can be rough and there are rocks underneath, so take care when swimming. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
