Hard track
Starting from The Loop car park at the end of Loop Access Road, Kalbarri National Park, this circuit walk takes you past Nature's Window and along the Murchison River via The Loop Trail. Enjoy the view over the river through the stunning rock formation, then continue along the path across ridges and gorges. The track is challenging to follow at times, with markers becoming few and far between and situated on different elevations in parts. In summer, it can get extremely hot on the walk, so rather choose cooler 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.
