Kalbarri is about 130km north of Geraldton. It is not really a sailing spot. You may be able to sail in the mouth of the river if the wind was westerly, however this is not a likely wind direction.

Kalbarri is however a beautiful spot, with gorges and the Murchison river meandering through the town. It is well worth the drive from Geraldton, especially if the wind is light for a couple of days. it only takes about 1.5 hours to drive there.

Attractions and Activities.

Kalbarri in at the mouth of the Murchison river, on the coast of WA. The Murchison meanders through a a series of gorges, on it's way to the sea. There is horse riding, abseiling, canoing, walking and much sightseeing to be done in the area.

We did a tour with Kalbarri Adventure Tours, that took us walking through some of the gorges and canoing down the river. It was an all day tour for $60, and exceptional value. This album shows some pictures taken of the scenery during the tour.
