Kalbarri is a little town located around 600km northern of Perth, famous for its national park having the same name with the township.
Kalbarri has a tag line for its tourism which is "Kalbarri, you'll love it" and yes I loved it on the first day of our visit. This place is awesome with so many things to see.

Sunrise at Kalbarri
A warm sunrise woke us up, and we were so ready to explore Kalbarri that day. Before heading to the National Park, we stopped a while to see the sunrise.
At 08.45 am everyday, there's pelican feeding on the foreshore. But we had to avoid the heat at Kalbarri National Park, so we skipped the pelican feeding and headed to Kalbarri National Park.

Kalbarri National Park
We are big fans of Australian's National Parks, and the Kalbarri National Park is one of our favorite national park.
We made a separate post regarding our visit to Kalbarri National Park on tesyasblog.

Kalbarri is a laid back city, along the Murchison River. Most of the hotels and motels are located opposite the river. With a view to the lush garden and the river.
There's a supermarket, some restaurants and souvenir shop at the heart of the city.

It was a sunny day in the morning until midday when we visited Kalbarri National Park, but unfortunately after 3 pm, it became cloudy.
From our motel, we drove along Indian Ocean drive heading to Port Gregory and stopped at the famous Pink Lake. This lake has so many beta-carotene in the water which made the water pink.

We spent some time here just sitting along the lake. Only few cars passed this road, we enjoyed the tranquility at Pink Lake.

Port Gregory Jetty
Then we drove further to the Port Gregory Jetty, where we saw boats and one man who was busy fishing at the jetty. Everything was closed at 4 pm, so we stayed there a while to take pictures and headed back to Kalbarri.

The cliffs we saw at Kalbarri was really beautiful. First stop was the Red Bluff. It is supposed to be a nice place to see the sunset, but it was really cloudy approaching sunset time.

Anyway, we enjoyed the dramatic coastal. Look at this rocks formation, it is amazing! It is believed to be 400 million years old.

Then we moved to another lookout to see the Natural Bridge. It reminds me to the London Arch of Victoria's Great Ocean Road.

Actually there's a path to do coastal walk in this area, where yo can move from one lookout to another one. We didn't have much time, so we move around with our rented car.
Our last stop was the Island Rock, which looks like the apostles we saw in our Great Ocean Road sunset tour back in 2012.

It was a special day for me and mr.husband to see all nature wonders in one day. I wish I could stay here at least for a week!
Visit Kalbarri, you'll love it.
