Karijini is home to a spectacular and unique collection of gorges and rockpools that are unlike anywhere else in the world! The walks, gorges and attractions make this one of the most amazing national parks in Australia.A variety of trails have been marked out by the Department of Environment and Conservation and have been graded according their degree of difficulty.
The natural “Spa Pool” in Karijini National Park (which till 1991 it was called Hamersley Park) – is located in the Hamersley Ranges ( Pilbara region), Northwestern Western Australia, Hamersley Gorge itself actually lays outside the centeral part of the park, in order to get to Hamersley Gorge (where the spa pool is at) there is about 2 more hours to drive including some on a dusty dirt road, but well, as you can see in the photos below, it is definitely worth making the effort.
The natural spa pool is small and somewhat circular with a little waterfall one end and a path for a little stream at the other end. The photo opportunity is enhanced when we add to the mix the additional crazy and different colors of spectacular deep red and cobalt-blue rock walls around the pool, a must see when in Northwestern Western Australia (and a must swim).
A moderate level of fitness and agility is required to visit the most spectacular areas of the National Park, but specialised hiking equipment isn’t necessary you are fine to walk around in a sturdy pair of sneakers or boots.
