An alarmingly high 'Skywalk' is coming to Western Australia, and we're shaking in our boots

Hold on to your hats, people.

If you have a fear of heights, it’s best you look away now. Coming to Western Australia’s Kalbarri National Park in early 2020 is a leg-trembling vantage point called the Kalbarri Skywalk.

Once opened, visitors will be able to step out over two 100-metre high skywalks with a connecting boardwalk, jutting out 25m and 17m beyond the rim of the Murchison River Gorge.

Known for its wildflowers, sandstone cliffs and adventure activities, the Kalbarri National Park is a naturally scenic spot, which photographers and nature lovers can now witness up-close.

Two Aboriginal rangers have been employed full time in the national park to help manage the increased tourism levels that are expected to come with the new landmark. The site will also include an environmentally friend

The much-anticipated $24 million Kalbarri Skywalk project is taking shape with the installation of two viewing platforms.

Offering unprecedented views over the Murchison River Gorge, the $5.3 million viewing platforms project 25 and 17 metres beyond the cliff face.

The two platforms, part of the multi-million skywalk project, offer soaring views of the gorges and surrounds below and feature in a virtual fly-through video of what the project is expected to look like, once complete.

The video takes viewers above the Murchison River and along the two 100-metre-high cantilevered skywalks.

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said there was an increasing demand for nature-based tourism, which the State Government was investing in.

“Last financial year, more than 450,000 visits were recorded in Kalbarri National Park and we’re certain that number will increase when the skywalk opens in 2020,” he said.

The project, which includes $10.1 million of road and car park improvements, has created more than 150 local jobs during the construction phase and 10 jobs for local Aboriginal people.

Once finished, the new attraction will continue to create employment opportunities for tourism businesses, accommodation providers and associated service industries.

Two Aboriginal rangers have also been employed fulltime in the national park to help manage the increased tourism levels.

Environment Minister Stephen Dawson said the skywalk would further cement Kalbarri's reputation as an international destination and one of Australia's most popular destinations.

“It's really exciting to see the Skywalk come to life in the virtual fly-through,” he said.

“Significant to the Aboriginal Nanda People, Kalbarri National Park is already famous for its 80-kilometre-long gorge, coastal cliffs, striking wildflowers and various recreational activities.”

“The skywalks have been designed to complement the existing landscape, and I'm pleased to say that with universal accessibility, they can be enjoyed by all who visit the park.”
