First look at Kalbarri Skywalk
The $24 million Kalbarri Skywalk project is well underway and due for completion in early 2020. Two cantilevered walkways will provide superb views over the Murchison River Gorge.
Tourism WA says the $24 million project, which includes $10.1 million of road and car park improvements, has created more than 150 local jobs during the construction phase, including 10 jobs for local Aboriginal people.
This outstanding new attraction will continue to create employment opportunities post-construction for tourism businesses, accommodation providers and associated service industries.
Two Aboriginal rangers have also been employed full-time in the national park to help manage the expected increase in tourism.
Kalbarri National Park Kalbarri National Park is located 485 km north of Perth, in the Mid-West region of Western Australia. It surrounds the lower reaches of the Murchison River, which has cut a magnificent 80 kilometre gorge through the red and white banded sandstone to create formations such as Nature’s Window and The Loop, Z-Bend and Hawks Head, with scenic gorge views at the Ross Graham Lookout.
