Before we get into the top things to do in Kalbarri, let’s dive into where you’ll find Kalbarri National Park.

It’s known to be one of the most spectacular national parks in Western Australia, AND just as good as our favorite, Karijini.

Its located 570.9 km north of Perth (6 hours drive) by driving via State Route 60 and National Route 1.

From Coral Bay, it’s a 6 hour 45 minute drive South (672.8 km) along National Route 1.

The park is located on the lower reaches of the Murchison River Gorge.
