Starting from the Z Bend car park at the end of Z Bend Access Road, Kalbarri National Park, this walk takes you down to the Murchison River and back via the Four Ways Trail. Following the Four Ways Trail, the hike initially passes through the typical mix of low heath and mallee common to the Kalbarri area, then begins to descend into a side gorge leading to the river. The scenery gets more interesting as the gorge deepens. The Four Ways Trail ends at the Murchison River gorge, providing a spectacular viewpoint of its namesake. The well-marked trail is a mixture of sandy and rocky surfaces, with a continuous gradient down to the river. The steep uphill return journey back to the car park is more challenging. Facilities at the car park include informative displays, gas barbecues, picnic shelters and toilets. Beware of loose rocks and unstable surfaces, and be careful with foot placement to avoid sprains. Avoid doing this walk during the wet autumn due to high river levels and dangerously hot summer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
