Where is it?
Murchison River gorge, Kalbarri National Park, 585km north of Perth
How to see it for yourself?
From the Kalbarri National Park car park, the lookout can be reached via a 500m walking track. Gazing down, the gorge walls plunge 150m to the river below, where river red gums create a striking contrast against the earthy Tumblagooda sandstone. Kalbarri Tours offers tailor-made group charters to the gorge, as well as canoeing tours for more adventurous types.
Why I love it
“Named after the enormous Z bend created over time by the Murchison River, the lookout offers views that will spellbind visitors. There are these dramatic sandstone cliff faces which plummet into the river as it meanders through Kalbarri. Abseiling provides a particularly thrilling view!” – Grace Pappelendam, Australia’s Coral Coast
