Windjana Gorge National Park

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

As you continue down Gibb River Road you reach Windjana Gorge National Park.

The Windjana Gorge was shaped by the Lennard River and measures 100m wide, 3km long and the rock walls climb up to 30m in some places.

These rocks are the same as those found at Tunnel Creek and Geikie Gorge. All are a part of the Napier Range, the 375 million year old Devonian reef system.

During the wet season which occurs between October and April the river will flow in the gorge.



However, during the remaining months (the dry season) the river transforms into a series of pools encased by shrubs and trees. Paperbarks, cajebuts, fig trees and leichhardt trees are common in the area. The area is also home to several species of fruit bats and fresh water crocodiles and the sounds of the corellas fill your ears.

Windjana Gorge National Park is located 355km East of Broome and approximately 1855km northeast of Perth in the West Australian Kimberley.
