Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Kalamina Road, Karijini National Park, this walk takes you past Kalamina Falls, then along Kalamina Gorge to Rock Arch Pool and back. Arguably the most underrated gorge walk in Karijini National Park, Kalamina Gorge is one of the lesser-known attractions due to it being located deep within the park. While not as deep as the other gorges, Kalamina makes up for it by offering a unique and picturesque experience of stunning reflections on still pools and glowing red walls. Kalamina Gorge has more trees and plants than most gorges in the national park, making the area around its watercourse shaded and more picturesque. You'll come across a track that will take you to a seasonal waterfall after descending into the gorge via the man-made steps. Although the waterfall is seasonal, the rock pool there is permanent. To explore the gorge further, it's a relatively easy walk through the gorge itself, following the watercourse downstream past rock pools and beautiful rock walls to Rock Arch Pool. You'll need to use the stepping stones a few times to pass the creek. The walk is largely on uneven, rocky and unmodified terrain. The gradients are gentle, with only a short, steep descent into the gorge. The circle markers attached to the rock will guide you along which side of the gorge you are meant to be walking along. Keep an eye out for spots to swim as there are many along the way, with deep and clear water. Drinking water, toilets and an information shelter are present at the car park. The combination of wide gorge walking, the beauty of Rock Arch Pool and the relaxed nature of the hike make this a perfect walk for adventurous young families. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
