Karijini is a National Park in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. I stopped there for a couple of days on my road trip from Perth to Broome in May 2014 and I would say that it is a must-do!
The park is all the shades of red that you can imagine with many unusual and interesting rock formations, gorges, natural pools and waterfalls. It is a beautiful place to go for a hike, climb or swim. You do have to be careful there in the dry season (April-October) as the water can get very cold, especially the pools in the shade. It was a real challenge to jump in but I thought I might never get the chance again! I particularly enjoyed the ‘Fern Pool’ which is full of small fish who will come and tickle you!
When I was there the park was quiet and I could really enjoy the sounds of Nature. It was a perfect place to meditate, write, relax and find some peace. I loved it there.
If you go make sure you take a pair of closed shoes, plenty of water, sunglasses and a cap.
