Slip Slop Slap
The sun down under can be fiercely hot and unrellenting causing one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. The Slip Slop Slap campaign started way back in the 80's encouraging Aussies to protect their skin by Slipping on a shirt, Slopping on some sunscreen and Slapping on a hat.
"I love this sunburnt country,
But not a sunburnt face.
So even on a cloudy day,
Slop on sunscreen just in case."
Other coastal cliffs south of Kalbarri are Red Bluff, Eagle Gorge, Pot Alley, Mushroom Rock and Rainbow Valley. At Eagle Gorge, eagles have been sighted flying high above the cliffs on the coastal currents whereas at Rainbow Gorge, rainbows can often be seen in the sea mist. All these gorges are well sign posted from the main road.

Visit the local museum
On Grey Street, in the centre of Kalbarri, you'll find an unusual museum, filled with lots of different things. You enter the museum through a shop where you go down the stairs. These stairs lead to a replica underground mine full of interesting facts on the mining business.
The rest of the museum consists of a huge collection of dolls from all over the world, reptiles, toys, articles on the shipwreck history of the coast around Kalbarri and numerous other things.
The museum is really something different and definitely worth a visit. Entrance fee was only AU$2.
The Z bend is another gorge at Kalbarri national park, and is named for the Z bend the cliffs form as the river winds between them. You can also climb down to the river from the lookout, however the rocks are slippery and tend to slide so good shoes are necessary.
During winter and spring you may be lucky to see migrations of humpback whales. There are tours available which will take you out closer or you can go to places like Red Bluff or Eagle gorge to get the best chance of a sighting.
