Karijini National Park - 12th August 2009
In the Pilbara region of WA, inland from the industrial towns of Karratha and Port Hedland, are the gorges of Karijini National Park. Like gashes in the dry landscape, many of them are not visible until you are nearly at their edge. Whilst sections of the gorges are wide and easy to walk in, at times they narrow to only a metre or two, generally with cold pools of water, making walking difficult or limiting access to canyoning trips. Hancock Gorge (above) is one of the most spectacular for its narrow fissure, with Kermit Pool reached via the "Spider Walk".
