safaris.net.au

This 10 day Adventure from Perth to Broome, is full of fantastic scenery, excellent wildlife and great activities. The tour is a combination of our "West Coast Explorer" safari and "Karijini" safari, and combines the best of Western Australia's coastline with the spectacular Pilbara outback. The tour is fully accommodated (budget accommodation), with all meals supplied.

Day 8: Today we head for Karijini National Park. This area contains some of the World's oldest rock formations and is renowned for it's spectacular scenery. Once inside Karijini National Park, we travel to Oxer Lookout which is the junction of 4 spectacular gorges. We then descend into Weano Gorge and take the short trek through the bottom of the gorge to Handrail Pool. If time permits we will take a look at Knox Gorge and Joffre Falls Lookout. Moving on through the park we take another walk into Kalamina Gorge before heading for Fortescue Falls where we walk along the cliff tops to Circular Pool lookout, then take the steep descent into Dales Gorge. We then take the interesting trek from Circular Pool to Fortescue Falls, keep your eyes open for some Water monitors basking on rocks along the way. The pool at Fortescue Falls is perfect for cooling off after your walk before climbing the steps out of the gorge back to the vehicle at the top. These is time for a browse through the Aboriginal Centre in the park before taking one of only two breaks in the Ranges to get to the other side. (Overnight - Auski).
