Starting from the dirt car park on Home Valley Road, Kimberley, this walk takes you on a circuit, visiting Meteorite Valley Lookout along the way. You can enjoy the spectacular views of the Cockburn Ranges and the meteorite crater after you traverse in between savannah woodland. It is also possible to see colourful spinifex pigeons and red-tailed cockatoos. The crocodiles sunbathe around the bank as well! There are amenities for visitors at Home Valley station. The trail can be rocky and a little steep at certain sections. 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.
