Story: Kalbarri Coastal Cliffs
Presenter: Chrissy Morrissy and Josh Kennedy
Air Date: 2nd January 2022
There are few ways to enjoy the incredible views Kalbarri has to offer. Chrissy checks it out on Kalbarri’s stunning coastal cliff drive trail.
- The Natural Bridge is the first stop on the Kalbarri costal cliff trail, and as the name suggests, you will see a fully formed limestone ‘bridge’ attached to the Kalbarri coastline. Only a short (200 meter) walk from the carpark, visitors can view this stunning formation and costal views safely from the lookout enclosures. It’s a popular place to spot marine life such as whales and dolphins.
- Eagle Gorge, named for the wedge tailed eagles that live in the gorge, is another scenic lookout that can be accessed from the carpark. It’s abundant with wildlife so, make sure to keep an eye out for the magnificent birds that can often be seen in nests and soaring through the sky in search of prey.
- Pot Alley is a picturesque ocean gorge situated along the Coastal Cliffs, boasting spectacular ocean scenery amidst the expansive rugged gorges. A track (for the more nimble) leads down from the carpark through the picturesque ocean gorge to a small secluded beach.
- Mushroom rock is another striking formation on the Kalbarri coast where wind and wave erosion have exposed the layered Tumblagooda sandstone in cliffs. It’s an interesting viewpoint from which to see how the natural forces of wind and water have created strange and beautiful formations.
- Ending the drive trail at the dramatic 100-meter cliffs of Red Bluff, you can take a 60-minute walk along the beach into town or drive back.
