Murchison River Gorge - Day 2

Murchison River Gorge Index

The Gorge


It must have rained throughout the night as the air felt moisture-laden as we packed up camp that morning. After a while, the sun peaked out from the clouds and the warm rays seemed to sweep away any residue of the lingering morning dew that was left. It didn't take long for the remaining clouds to dissipate, leaving a clear azure sky in their wake, perfectly reflected in the mirror-like water of the still river. Read more

The trip began with a long, 573km drive from Perth. The group had brought two cars, with the first departing slightly earlier so as to be able to stop at various points along the route that were accessible by road.

The Murchison River Gorge is a spectacular riverine gorge that can be found in Kalbarri National Park in Mid-West Western Australia. The 80 kilometre-long gorge has been carved out by the mighty Murchison river, the second-longest river in Australia, as it meandered over millions of years towards the end of its (currently) 780 kilometre journey, just before swerving towards the township of Kalbarri and the Indian Ocean.
