See two billion years of Earth’s history and a Staircase to the Moon.
Witness the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon and the lush oasis of Millstream, before descending into Karijini’s ancient cavernous gorges. Here you can scale some of the oldest rocks on Earth and swim beneath plunging waterfalls. But your Pilbara adventure doesn’t end there, as Western Australia’s most biodiverse marine habitat – the Dampier Archipelago – awaits your return to the coast.
-Most of the trails in Karijini National Park are easily accessible; however, some require a moderate to high level of fitness and agility. Be aware of your own capabilities and limits and watch your step at all times.
-Avoid entering the gorges if extreme weather conditions are forecast. Temperatures can be very hot in the Pilbara, however the gorges tend to be cooler and the water can be cold as it gets very little direct sun. Heavy rain can result in very dangerous flash flooding and gorges should be avoided if there has been rainfall.
