Guests and visitors are advised that due to the recent inclement weather conditions and to ensure safety, Karijini Eco Retreat will be closed until further notice. We are hoping to open in the coming days and affected guests will be contacted accordingly as we learn more. Further updates will be posted on this page as they are available. We apologise for any inconvenience during this period.
The following sites in Karijini National Park have reopened on 18th February after ex Tropical Cyclone Damien:
• Dales Campground
• Fortescue Falls
• Fern Pool
These sites can be accessed via Banjima Drive East and Dales Road.
The remainder of Karijini National Park remains closed.
A new lookout is being installed to view Fortescue Falls in Karijini National Park. Construction is under way as the lookout is linked to the steps down to the Falls. Visitors are asked to proceed with caution and follow directions as machinery and equipment are being used at the site.

Entry into the National Park and to the Karijini Eco Retreat via Bunjima Drive (West) is now sealed, barring the 3km access road to the Retreat. This is the recommended route to follow.
Entry via the Visitor Centre is an unsealed road, (gravel) and although this road is graded regularly we recommend AWD/4WD vehicles to be used. Please note that there may be corrugations and this is not the recommended route.
Guests are advised to ensure that all belongings are secured, particularly in caravans and trailers prior to entering the National Park via the Visitor Centre.
Guests staying in the National Park during the winter months (June to August) are advised to ensure that they have warm clothing, particularly for the night time as temperatures can drop to zero degrees during this period.
