If anyone has been to the Pilbara and Karijini National Park, I trust you walked away breathless. The Pilbara is such a barron land, full of the most amazing colours you will see. The red dust is unbelievable, the spinifex lovely shades ranging from green to gold, the white gums standing out create a stunning site. The main reason for me heading to the Pilbara was to explore Karijini. I was not disappointed, and will return for sure.
Located 1400km North of Perth, in between Tom Price and Newman Karijini is often referred to as the “Heart of the Pilbara”. There are a range of Gorge walks ranging in different degrees of difficulty. All Gorges are reasonably easy till they get to the Grade 6 sections, where a guide is highly recomended due to them requiring some climbing/abseiling equipment.
This image was taken from The Karijini Eco Retreat where I was camping. It gives a good indication as to the colours that can be found there. I was having my breakfast when I saw the colours start coming out as the sun got close to breaking the horizon. Quickly grabbing the camera and tripod I ran to this location not even 50m away. It really is a typical Pilbara Sunrise.
