Hamersley Gorge Walk, Karijini NP

Overview

This is a dramatic gorge, full of colour texture and reflections and a great spot for a swim.

Hamersley Gorge is in the north-west of Karijini, further afield than the other gorges. Swirls of rock sweep down through the gorge and waterfalls rush into tranquil pools. There have been improvements to the site including sealed road access to the lower car park, a new constructed lookout, toilet and various infrastructure items.
