Windjana Gorge National Park, Kimberley Region

4.8
Windjana Gorge National Park is a national park in the Kimberley region of Western Australia (Australia), 1855 km northeast of Perth and 355 km east of Broome.The gorge has been carved by the Lennard River and is over 3 km long and about 100m wide with walls to a height of 30m in places. The rocks are part of the Napier Range, an ancient Devonian reef system that is over 375 million years old. The rocks are the same as the ones found at Tunnel Creek and Geikie Gorge.The river flows freely through the gorge during the wet season but during the dry season (between May and September) it becomes a series of pools surrounded by trees and shrubs. Some of the vegetation found along the river banks include paperbarks, cadjebuts, native fig trees and leichhardt trees.

    An activity that's worth, mainly the beginning of the journey (until 2/3). As soon as the way is sinking into the bush, this is in my opinion no need to continue (the trail becomes less pleasant and there is nothing special to see). You can very easily see freshwater crocodiles.

    Incredible geology of the Devonian Reef and a very beautiful gorge. Abundant fresh water crocodiles make this well worth visiting. The campground is large with good facilities but gets very crowded in peak times so arrive early.

    Gorge looks spectacular from car park. The walk along water course is fascinating. Able to walk on sandy beach within metres of freshwater crocodiles. Saw dozens in space of a 1 hours walk.

    Just go. Fantastic. There were 22 crocodiles on one sand bar and bats further up the walk. Dam hot though, take water.

    Great little gorge with lots of crocodiles. Camping facilities were great. We were here in school holidays and it was very busy. Don't arrive late.

    Unbelievable experience with KimberlyWild Adventures... This place is stunning and prehistoric. Roads are unmade on the way in so make sure your 4WD is up to scratch. Rivals Yosemite National Park.
