“The lop and natures window”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Did a trip out there this morning in a very small hyundai i30 after reading about the new road .this new road came to a sudden stop after around 12 Klm from the entrance office . Very bumpy and rough old track after the new road finished for around 15 Klm suitable only for 4wheel drives ,old cars or hire cars! When we. Arrived the new car park and facilities were very good . Short walk to the main attractions which were very impressive .Flies very bad take a net .worth a look

A very surreal place to visit. I felt I could sit all day at natures window overlooking the gorge, very peaceful and hadn't seen anything like it before.

I went in February and it was lovely and warm (a lot of flies though), not many tourists at all. We walked down to the gorge and went for a swim, great fun. The west coast is such a brilliant experience, not too many tourists, beautiful scenery and quite remote, I would highly recommend it.

“Z bend and loop road closed”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great place, however please be aware that the road to z bend and the loop is closed due to road being re sealed, till approximately October.

Access to hawks head and Ross graham lookout is still open.

It would be nice to find this info more available seeing as it is a major tourist destination. Not sure why a half lane can't be open and traffic managed between sections.

“Come after the rains have been”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We came in April and it was very hot and full of flies.

To enjoy this, come at a cooler time of the year after the rains have been as I think the views would be better with water in the gorge.

If you plan to go in the warmer months here is some advice:

1. Take a camelback or a backpack with water.
2. Wear good shoes (it's rocky)
3. Wear a fly net
4. If you don't have a fly net take something to shoo the flies away.

“The Loop and Z bend Kalbarri National Park”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

It's a good idea to take a picnic to give yourself time to absorb the peace, openness,light and feeling of being right up there. That way it doesn't matter what the cost is, even though it is very reasonable at $11 a vehicle.Make sure you take water. This is very important if you intend exploring.
I think of the Grand Canyon in America as I stand looking at the terrain, with water winding at the bottom.
Sometimes groups of goats can be seen in the distance.
Remember to go to the shortest one from the main road, because the gravel is atrocious.
There are no shops.
