About Knox Gorge Lookout, Karijini NP
One of the most amazing features of Karijini National Park's complex network of gorges is that they appear out of nowhere and make you gasp in awe. This lookout is no exception.
After negotiating some steps you come to a platform that is bordered by a safety railing system for a very good reason. Even with the railing, you may get an attack of vertigo as the gorge plunges 100 metres from your feet. Then you focus on the far gorge wall that curves spectacularly around a bend in the river.
