Karijini National Park is centred in the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara region in the northwestern section of the Australian state of Western Australia. The park is located just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, approximately 1,000 km from the state's capital city, Perth. Totally surrounded by mining activity the park preserves some of the most beautiful and important landscape in Australia. The five Gorges that flow North out of the Park provide spectacular displays of the multi-coloured rock layers. The park is notable for its slot canyons, waterfalls and water holes and for the oldest rocks on the planet – 350 million year old sedimentary reef systems – so old that the only fossils are of microbes that first synthesized oxygen on our planet.
Karijini - what a magical place and captured so spectacularly - love this remote part of Australia and brings back very fond memories of a visit some years ago. Must return - stunning.
Karijini National Park is one of my favourite National Parks in Australia. The ancient rock formations and slot canyons are very impressive. The photographs capture the deep colours on the rocks and landscape. The photographs bring back many memories of wonderful hikes through the gorges. What a fantastic collection of photographs.
