Karijini National Park Entry Fees


 An entry fee or $15 per vehicle ($8 for concessions) applies to all national parks including Karijini National Park.

Park Passes are available for purchase at any entry points to the park, at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, or at the Karijini Eco Retreat.

Entry fees apply to all National Parks, including Karijini, and are not included in any accommodation rates or packages.

 

 

Driving & Roads


Entry into the National Park and to the Karijini Eco Retreat via Banjima Drive (West) is now sealed, except for the 3km access road to the Retreat. Entry via the Karijini Visitor Centre on Banjima Drive (North) is a 35km unsealed gravel road - if you prefer to drive on a sealed road, you can take the longer way around instead - drive down Banjima Drive (East), then right onto Karijini Drive, then right to Banjima Drive (West). These roads are graded several times during the year by the Shire and are normally in relatively good condition, however some sections can become quite corrugated at times, particularly during busy periods, rainfall or heavy traffic. Please ensure that all belongings are secured, especially in caravans and trailers, prior to entering the National Park.
We recommend 4WD/AWD vehicles.

 

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) reserves the right to restrict access or close roads, gorges, lookouts and hiking trails within the National Park if there are adverse weather conditions or for safety reasons.

 

For your own convenience and safety, it is advisable that you check all weather and road conditions before your arrival. You may also call the Karijini Eco Retreat to check conditions and access on (08) 9189 8013.

 

Please ensure when renting vehicles that you check directly with the rental company that their intended vehicle can be taken onto unsealed (gravel) roads prior to making a reservation.

 

 

Weather

 

Winter (June to August): The winter months average about 25°C during the day which is ideal for hiking the gorges and exploring the park, but can drop to 0°C at night. Guests staying in the Karijini National Park during the winter months are advised to bring warm clothing (thermals, jumpers, jackets, beanies, gloves), and if camping bring extra bedding (blankets, warm sleeping bags), particularly for the night time as temperatures can drop to zero degrees during this period.

 

Summer (December to February): Temperatures at Karijini during this period can reach in excess of 40°C on a daily basis. Our new Luxury Eco Tents have solar powered air conditioning but the rest of our accommodation is not air-conditioned. Deluxe Eco Tents have a pedestal fan and natural ventilation only.

 

Cyclone Season (November to April): Please be aware and check weather and road conditions, park alerts including closures, and especially cyclone season safety if travelling to Australia’s north, and plan your visit carefully. Cyclones and inclement weather can occur in Australia’s north between November and April. If your booking is between the months of November and April, please ensure that you are aware of any potential cyclones in the area and any Park Alerts before leaving home. Decisions made to continue your travel to Karijini Eco Retreat/Karijini National Park during the risk of a potential cyclone will be taken into consideration when refunds are issued.

Conservation Policy


We minimise our impact on the environment by using solar panels to power Karijini Eco Retreat, using natural cleaning products to minimise chemicals in the Park, providing hot water bottles instead of heaters, and supplying eco-friendly soap products for guests staying in our deluxe eco tents.

 

Please help us to protect the environment by:

• Respecting the eco-friendly policies of the Retreat by taking short showers and flushing the toilet using the half-flush button

• Avoiding the risk of bushfire. Use the gas barbecues provided, or your own portable cooking appliance. Ground fires and solid fuel fires are not permitted in the Park

• Taking your rubbish with you. There are no bins and no rubbish removal service in the Karijini National Park. Please take your rubbish with you on departure and dispose responsibly

• Not disturbing or taking any animals, plants or rocks

• Keeping the area the way you would like to find it. Leave nothing but your footprints!

 

"Take only memories, leave only footprints."
