Kalbarri viewing platforms open soaring views
The highly anticipated Kalbarri Skywalk opened on 12 June and is expected to be a major tourism drawcard to the Kalbarri National Park and other attractions in the Mid-West region of WA.
Two cantilevered platforms provide visitors with magnificent views over the Murchison Gorge. The State Government’s $24 million project also includes a kiosk, shade shelters, toilets, parking, 22km of park roads and upgrades to Meanarra Hill and Z Bend tourist sites.
The culture and stories of the Nanda Traditional Owners are showcased through interpretive and artistic elements. Visitors are met with an entry sign stating kaju yatka, the Nanda words for ‘sky’ and ‘to walk.’
With its exceptional wildflowers, sandstone cliffs and variety of recreational activities, the Kalbarri National Park had over 460,000 visitors in the 2018-19 financial year.
