Where is it? In the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara in north-western WA

A two-hour drive from Newman, you’ll find the gorges, mountains, lookouts, secret swimming holes and waterfalls that define this awe-inspiring National Park. Expectations of arid, desolate landscapes are exchanged for delight at this diverse, rugged, red-rock landscape with often surprisingly green patches, and numerous places to take a dip. There are plenty of shady campsites in the Park. Be sure to base yourself for at least a night at Dales Gorge, from where you can hike to spectacular Circular Pool.
