Easy track
Starting from Weano Day Use Area on Weano Road, Karijini, this walk takes you to Oxer Lookout and back, visiting Junction Pool Lookout. Both lookouts are considered to be a few of the most spectacular views in Western Australia. They provide visitors with views of deep cliffs that are a result of ancient erosive forces. Be cautious around the edges as the cliffs go down as much as 100 metres, and it can be dizzying for some. 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.
