Karijini National Park

Here’s a little blast from the past!

Karijini National Park is centred in the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara region in the northwest of the Australian state of Western Australia. The park is located approximately 1,500 kilometres from the state’s capital city, Perth and around 70 kilometres north of Tom Price.

At 627,422 hectares, Karijini is the second largest national park in Western Australia.

The park is renowned for its many breathtaking gorges, waterfalls and water holes.  

The climate can best be described as tropical semi-desert. Temperatures during the summer months top 40 + degrees Celsius. The ideal times to visit Karijini is late autumn, winter and early spring. Winter days are warm and clear, but nights are cold.

Before we welcomed our gorgeous kids into the world, we lived in the small mining town of Tom Price for a few years. 

Karijini National Park is among many of the stunning sights to see around the Pilbara Region.

We plan to go back to Tom Price one day to see how much it has changed since living there 14 odd years ago and Karijini will be top of the list to visit and explore with the kids!
