Very Long coastal site rising from Dunes to Sea Cliffs.


The start north of Kalbarri is a typical sand dune site. The ridge rises as you head north, carrying on for over 100km and becoming the Zuytdorp cliffs, sheer vertical cliffs into the ocean. Obviously the cliff section is not suitable for novices. There is very limited road access between Kalbarri and Shark Bay, expected to have to walk all the way back to Kalbarri if the wind changes. The cliffs have been flown from the north end near Useless Loop, but the launches are very committing with no bottom landing, and reputedly many sea monsters.

Accomodation: Stay in Kalbarri.
