No holiday to Kalbarri is complete until you have tried your luck at catching a fish. You can go beach fishing, charter a boat or just dangle a line from the jetty in town.
We fish for the future by preserving fish stock and returning back to the water what we don't need.
Come fly with me...
See some of Kalbarri's spectacular gorges around the National Park and inaccessible terrain from the air with the locally owned and operated Kalbarri Air Charter.
The flight we took went out across to Kalbarri National Park and over the spectacular gorges of the Murchison River.
Then it flies over Murchison House Station, over Kalbarri town and finally the flight goes speeding over the ocean past the rugged coastal cliffs.
Duration is 45min and the plane holds 5 people.

Murchison gorge, 35ks from Kalbarri, 26 of which are gravel road through part of the 183,000 ha of national park, but are accessible by car or cycle, is The Loop, Nature's Window and Z-bend which are well worth the effort of going. Real outback feeling as you walk through the bush and come to the edge of the cliff and see the river wind its way through the valley below.
The good thing about the Hawks Head lookout is that you do not have to enter the national park to see it, so you dont have to pay. However it is some distance away from the Kalbarri township, about 40km. The last time I went to Kalbarri you were able to stand on the Hawk shaped rock, and so get a good picture, however now they have signs warning not to, due to the possibility of it falling, and there is a lookout a few metres away from the rock formation. There is also a disabled persons access path, the path to the lookout is the shortest and more accessable then any of the river lookouts.
Kalbarri has a pleasant beach which is sheltered from the open water so the sea is very calm. pelicans frequent the beach during the dayand are popular with children.
It makes a perfect spot to watch the sun go down, with a couple of tinnies.
