Natures Window looking out across the Murchison River to the gorge below. Kalbarri National Park is about 485km North of Perth. Over the past 400 million years, the flow of the Murchison River has created magnificent deep red and white banded gorges of sandstone rock through the landscape of Kalbarri National Park, which stretch 80km towards the ocean. Located just 500m from The Loop carpark it is arguably one of Western Australia's most iconic natural attractions Nature's Window marks the beginning and end of the Loop Walk an 8km walking trail (Class 4 hike).
Note: temperatures in the river gorges can reach 50'C (122F) in summer. For this reason, The Loop Walk is closed after 7am from November to March (inclusive). Do not walk the trail in hot weather, and ensure that each person carries and drinks 3-4 litres of water each, per day, when hiking in the National Park.
Located across the gorge from Nature's Window is an innovative tourism precinct and the National Park's newest attraction, the Kalbarri Skywalk.
