Moderate track
Starting from the car park at the end of Hidden Valley Road, Kununurra, this return walk takes you on a stroll through a savanna woodland in Mirima National Park. This colourful walk is completed with beautiful displays of rock formations and colours scattered throughout the woodland. The area also hosts a number of wild animals such as rock wallabies and wallaroos. Interpretive signs along the way inform visitors about the Aboriginal History of Miriuwung People and the park. Additionally, the journey can be completed as a one-way walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Miriuwung people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
