Karijini National Park Apr 01, 2015
Visited Karijini with a couple of mates and it was unreal. We had a short stay for a few days before we headed to Broome so we managed to book and jump on a West Oz Active tour. Words can't describe how amazing this place is. You have to see and experience this place in person and the only way to do it is by doing a West Oz Active tour. They take you canyoning. You abseil, slide down waterfalls, climb cliff faces, laze about paddling on tubes through the gorges. Millions of years have carved out this place. Check out my photos.

Amazing scenery Jun 20, 2011
Well worth going there for a look at the waterfalls so peaceful and gorgeous for swimming in. Local places to stay in are Tom Price at the backpackers. This is about 4 and half 5 hours from Exmouth and about 5 hours from Karatha.

Gorges of Karijini National Park Jul 01, 2010
Karijini National Park is located in the north of Western Australia. It is tucked away far from the major cities of Australia and you will only be able to visit if you got your own car (preferably 4WD) or if you go on an organized tour with some sort of tour company. Getting to the park will require a long drive either all the way from Perth which would take a couple of days or you might be able to fly to Port Headland from where it would only be a few hours’ drive. You can stay overnight inside the park at a camp ground which got anything from very basic campsites to deluxe tents. If you don’t want to stay inside the park you should be able to find a place to stay in one of the small nearby mining towns like Tom Price, Paraburdoo or possibly Wittennoom - the last one should only be used if there is no wind considering the area can possibly be hazardous in windy condition because the wind will stir up the asbestos fibers’ which are still left in the area from the old mining days.

One reason people go this far away from civilizations is - just to get away from civilization. But most people go here because the area is home to some of the most stunning landscapes in all of Australia. There are plenty of gorges in the area which is impressive when just view from above which everybody can do. If you are just reasonable physical fit you should be able to hike down into one or more of the gorges to enjoy the landscape and possibly go for a swim. Just remember the water is chilly during the winter and the hiking will be hot as hell during the summer when temperatures in the high forties.

The gorges are different shades of the traditional bright red colors of the central part of Australia. To generate a sharp contrast to the red of the soil is the gum trees which is spread out all over the park including the trees growing on the top of the gorges just hanging on to the cliff.
