If you leave Denham early enough you’ll reach the coastal town of Kalbarri by lunch time.

On the road into town, you can call in at the Kalbarri National Park Headquarters to gather information. There are two entry points as you leave Highway 1 which will take you to some of the park highlights (see below) before you even reach the town of Kalbarri.

Kalbarri Coastal Cliffs

A second part of the Kalbarri National Park is a leisurely 20 minute drive that runs south of Kalbarri along the coast which you could do heading south on the way out of town. Each of the nine or so stop-off points offers coastal views and walking trails. Some also have good snorkeling and swimming.

Pink Lake

If you keep driving south for 30 minutes you will come to the Pink Lake which gets its color from the carotenoid producing bacteria that inhabit it called Dunaliella Salina.

Colours change with the time of day and seasons through a spectrum of red, bubble-gum pink and lilac purple. The best time of day to visit is mid-morning and sunset

From here you are only a 100 km (1 hr 10 min) drive from Geraldton.
