circuit

↑ 75 m
↓ -75 m

Moderate track
Starting from the dirt car park at the end of Mushroom Rock Road, this walk takes you on a circuit in Kalbarri National Park. This walk offers visitors chances to experience rock formations that were created by ancient erosive forces. The red cliffs that have been shaped by the wind and water rise as much as 100 over the sea level. It is also possible to enjoy open views of the Indian Ocean. There are certain sections that can be slippery due to wet rocks and uneven surfaces. Walkers should proceed with caution. Wearing hiking shoes is advised. 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.
