The Western Australian government has recently completed this amazing infrastructure in Kalbarri National Park. It is great to see government committing to exceptional visitor experiences that encourage people to visit and learn more about the environment.
Work on the new Kalbarri Skywalk is nearing completion with the opening date soon to be released for early 2020.
The Kalbarri National Park, which is famous for its exceptional wildflowers, sandstone cliffs and variety of recreational activities, saw over 400,000 visitors in the last financial year. Tourism is a cornerstone of Kalbarri’s economy. By improving access and infrastructure, the park’s unique environment will be showcased to encourage more tourists to explore the town and wide Coral Coast region’s natural heritage.
The innovative tourism precinct in the park will include twin skywalks which will be built 100m apart at the Inyaka Wookai Watju site (the West Loop) which will project 20m and 12m beyond the gorge rim, more than 100m above the Murchison River.
There will be the complete redevelopment of the existing Z Bend lookout with parking for coaches and large caravans, a kiosk, walking trails, interpretative signage, shade shelters and toilets. The new Kalbarri Skywalks will be accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
