Karijini National Park is the second largest park in WA and is two billion years in the making. It is one of Western Australia’s most spectacular natural attractions and is the traditional home of the Banyjima, Kurrama and Innawonga Aboriginal people.
Located in the Pilbara region the park is home to many different wildlife habitats, landscapes, plants and animals. In the north of the park there are famous gorges where small creeks plunge into sheer-sided chasms up to 100 metres deep. Spectacular! Huge termite mounds are a feature of the landscape and some of the animals who call the park home include a large variety of birds, red kangaroos and euros, rock-wallabies, echidnas, several bat species, geckos, goannas, dragons, legless lizards, pythons and other snakes.
By volunteering with Conservation Volunteers you will get to experience this awesome landscape while helping to conserve its natural beauty. Activities will include creation of a walking trail near Dales Gorge, upgrading and repairing natural and concrete steps into Hancock Gorge, assisting with erosion control at Fern Pool and Dales Gorge and a working bee at the Karijini Visitors Centre. The team will also have the opportunity to take in the scenery of the massive gorges, crystal clear rock pools and waterfalls.
This project leaves from our Fremantle office on Sunday 12 August and it will take two days to drive to Karijini. The team will then have eight days on the ground in the national park and then arrive back in Fremantle on Thursday 23 August. For this project we will have access to bathroom and kitchen facilities within the park. Volunteers will need to be up for a real camping experience as we will free camp on the way up and back from Karijini. Concession rates are available, please contact our office in Perth on 08 9335 2777.
