Australia’s natural beauty knows no bounds, and its national parks are a good place to explore it. Karijini National Park is one of the most stunning examples, and it will take your breath away with its beautiful gorges, including these three.

Hancock Gorge

Karijini National Park is best known for several gorges that provide an amazing display of the rock layers, and Hancock is among the most popular ones. It offers a short, yet challenging, trail over narrow rocky ledges, and you’ll end up reaching the green waters of Kermits Pool if you keep exploring its surroundings.

Weano Gorge

Located in close proximity to Hancock, Weano Gorge is one of Karijini’s most easily accessible gorges. This red-rock canyon offers a natural swimming pool for fans of water sports, but you should also take a moment to explore its narrow passages and trails.

Hamersley Gorge

Located in the northwest of Karijini, further afield than the other gorges, Hamersley is another striking layered rock formation that you shouldn’t miss for the world. This steep gorge is best known for waterfalls rushing into its tranquil pools, which make a great spot for swimming.
