Water Body Nature / Park
Some of the best fishing spots in Western Australia are located along Murchison River, the second longest river in the state. Flowing for about 820 km (510 mi) from the southern edge of the Robinson Ranges to the Indian Ocean, this mighty river cuts a path through sandstone cliffs and provides numerous locations ideal for bushwalking, hiking, cruising, and canoeing. This pristine river is home to over 200 species of native birds, such as eagles, black swans, and wetland waders. Stop by the Kalbarri Visitor Center to schedule a sunset cruise, book a full-day canoe trip, or find out how to reach the best fishing areas along the river, abounding in bream, whiting, and mulloway. Murchison River is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Kalbarri Edition.
