Spectacular Inland.

The Kennedy Range & Mt Augustus National Parks offer a wilderness-style experience that everyone can enjoy. The opportunity to get back to nature while camping beneath the stars and the stark ancient landscapes is unmissable.

Have a chat to Hadyn and Jodie about the best camp spots, what to take & when to go.

A few days in the bush then return to the Capricorn Holiday Park for some comfort and relaxation.

Inland Adventures

Mt Kennedy Range National Park

Kennedy Range National Park, Western Australia is located 150 kilometres east of Carnarvon and extends for roughly 195 kilometres in a northerly direction from near Gascoyne Junction. 

If hiking or camping interest you then Kennedy Range National Park is not to be missed. A semi-developed park, it offers a wilderness-style experience and the opportunity to get back to nature while camping beneath the stars and the stark sandstone cliffs of the Kennedy Range. 

One of the best times to visit the Kennedy Range is in the months after good winter rains. At such times, the usually dusty red landscape bursts into bloom with a wide variety of delicate flowers and plants blanketing the National Park's ancient valleys. 

Sightseeing, photography, picnicking, bush camping, hiking and a trek to the top of the ranges can easily fill your time at Kennedy Range National Park. 

There is no entry fee for the National Park. There is a bush camping area that has a single bush toilet. Water is not available in the park so be sure to bring sufficient supplies. For more information on visiting Kennedy Range National Park contact the Carnarvon Visitor Centre.

Mt Augustus National Park

Mount Augustus National Park, Western Australia is located 460km east of Carnarvon and is home to the world's largest monocline, known as Burringurrah by the local Wadjari Aboriginal people. 

The rock itself is about eight kilometres long and covers an area of 4,795 hectares within Mount Augustus National Park. The granite rock that lies beneath Mount Augustus is 1,650 million years old. This makes it twice the size of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and considerably older. It is also the biggest 'rock' in the world. 

During dawn and dusk, its colours are awe inspiring, changing from deep indigo to bright pink, orange or red and occasionally green. These contrasts make for some amazing photo opportunities. 

Aboriginal etchings can be found on short walks around the rock at Flintstone Rock, Mundee and Ooramboo. For more information on visiting Mount Augustus National Park visit the Department of Parks and Wildlife

Organised tours to Mount Augustus National Park are available from Carnarvon. Contact the Carnarvon Visitor Centre for more information on visiting the National Park.
