The spectacular Kalbarri Skywalk is set to open on 20 June offering visitors to this incredible Western Australian location absolutely breathtaking views over the Murchison River gorge.
The new facility in Kalbarri National Park, on the Coral Coast around 600km north of Perth, consists two skywalks that project 25m and 17m beyond the rim of the gorge. Once open, this will allow visitors to walk out well over the edge of the rim, offering unimpeded views of the Murchison River gorge’s rust-red cliffs, flowing water and scrubby vegetation from above.
The Kalbarri Skywalk is located opposite Nature’s Window at a new site called the West Loop, and there is a boardwalk connecting the two skywalks.
The National Park Tourist Infrastructure Project is reported to have cost $24 million and it was initially expected to open in early 2020, but COVID-19 obviously meant those plans were scuppered… for a few months, anyway.
Once open, the Kalbarri Skywalk will operate from 6am to 6pm daily (sunrise to sunset), along with other inland gorge sites of the National Park, and entry to the park will cost $15 per vehicle (up to 12 passengers). It should be noted that all coastal sites of Kalbarri NP are free to visit.
For information on Kalbarri NP head to the National Parks website or the Kalbarri Visitor Centre, and make sure you check out the video below which gives a great idea of what a visit to the Kalbarri Skywalk will be like when it opens on 20 June.
