Carved by the meandering Murchison River, The Loop and Z Bend Gorge is one of the enchanting attractions within the Kalbarri National Park that offers perfect picnic spots and many scenic lookouts. Starting early in the morning not only helps avoiding the crowds, but allows for amazing sunrise views from the cliff tops. Feel the temperature drop as you descend to the river. Pay attention to impressive rock formations as you walk along the partially sandy, partially rocky riverbank. Before you venture on this four-hour return hike, make sure to don a hat, wear a fly net, apply sunblock, and pack lots of water.

They are separated from more than 11 Km... The consolidation of The Loop and Nature's Window would be more logical as it is at the same location? I already reported this problem but nothing changes. Finally, whatever the positions on Tripadvisor maps, all of these sites are beautiful, to visit everything in Kalbarri NP! Z Bend offers a short walk on a very easy trail with flowers (visited in September, so in the spring) and birds everywhere. The view on the Murchison River gorge is the highlight of the show. Only minor drawback ubiquitous flies but it's the Australia. Attention in the Sun, even in the spring: Hat + cream solar + water for the walk. As often in Australia the parking is great landscaped with shady kiosks and toilets. The road into the Park is, frankly, very good. Even the few unpaved areas are accessible to any type of vehicle. SUPERB
