    Karijini National Park

    May 12, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    The Karijini National Park is located a few hundred kilometers off the main highway. It has been on my bucket list for here since I saw a picture of a natural pool in the middle of red rock. We arrived at the Visitor Center just before noon to check the walks available.
    The Dale Gorge with some of walks is located just 15km away and we decided to do the large loop which led down to the gorge. From there it followed the gorge for 4km to the Circular Pool, up to the rim and back to the car park.
    It was an amazing experience and different from other spots we saw in Australia so far. The mountain ranges in the background, the lush gorges in contrast to the arid plains above create a spectacular scenery. We went for a swim in the Circular Pool, a refreshing retreat from the heat of the day. But as beautiful it is, you should be aware that large areas of the rocks are full of Asbestos 🧐
