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.
