Kennedy Ranges | Golden Outback
For a wilderness experience and fabulous colour photos, head to Kennedy Range National Park,
about 150km east of Carnarvon. The eroded sandstone plateau on the rim of the Gascoyne River
catchment rises 100 metres above the valley, offering amazing views of the Outback. Pushed
up from an ancient seabed millions of years ago, the range looms over the surrounding plains.
Perfect for adventurers, attractions include bushwalking, exploring the gorges, red sand dunes,
honeycomb-like rocks and spinifex-covered landscape and camping under the stars.
TIP The best time to visit is August through to September when the wildflowers are in full bloom.
TIP The park is 260km from Newman and only accessible by robust 4WD.
Consider joining a 4WD convoy run by a reputable tag-along tour operator.
Karlamilyi National Park | Pilbara
When they say this park is big, they mean big – the Perth metro area
would fit into half of it. Formerly called Rudall River National Park, at
12,000sqkm in size, it’s one of the biggest national parks in the world. A
vast, beautiful area of ancient ranges, remote water holes and gorges.
