Enjoyable resort found on Australias west coast
The Kalbarri Beach Resort lies at the western edge of the Kalbarri National Park, where the Murchison River meets the Indian Ocean. Its location lends itself to a varied range of natural landscapes, including sandy beaches and the famed Australian bush.
The beach resort itself is located on a 3.1 hectare site that overlooks the mouth of the Murchison. Guests are invited to stay in a series of two and three bedroom, self-catered apartments. Apartments include a stylish and clean bathroom, renovated kitchen area, and comfortable living quarters.
Amongst the amenities guest can expect to find in these apartments is a television with additional premium cable channels and DVD player, ceiling fans, and air-cooling units. The kitchen facilities offer a suitable location in which to prepare meals, but if you fancy something different there is a number of poolside barbecues and also an on-site restaurant which prepares fine, traditional dishes.
The resorts entertainment complex features a 25 metre swimming pool as well as a large wading pool and toddlers pool for younger children to enjoy. Guests can take-up a game of table tennis or utilize the full and half tennis courts on offer. Volleyball courts, a games room featuring arcade games, and childrens playground should be enough to keep almost any child amused, whilst the spa baths are ideal for adults looking for a little self-indulgent relaxation.
The Kalbarri Beach Resort is approximately a six hour drive from the state capital of Perth. As such, it is somewhat secluded which is perfect for those hoping to get away from the stress and strains of city life, or indeed those looking to sample a luscious part of the country.
The coastal beach is predictably the destinations focal point but the river mouth and nearby National Park both offer a number of activities and attractions.
The Murchison River mouth is favoured by water-sports enthusiasts. Here visitors are likely to see jet-skis, water skiers, power boats, kayaks, wind-surfers, and even swimmers. Emptying into the Indian Ocean, the river also provides good access to those that want to tour offshore. Popular with visitors here are nature tours that take in the marine life, including the whales and their calves which migrate this way.
The Kalbarri National Park is, as can be expected, a fantastic location for walkers and hikers, and those hoping to catch glimpse of some of Australias magnificent wildlife. Located in the park is the Rainbow Jungle, a parrot breeding centre that features hundreds of species of birds. Theres even a walk-in cage in which visitors can interact with their avian counterparts.
The Park also features some truly amazing natural landscapes. As well as the scenic cliff top views and natural vegetation, the Z Bend, a naturally formed V-shaped gorge along the River Murchison, offers a spectacular view of the river and the stones it has carved through across millions of years.
If all thats not enough, guests at the Kalbarri Beach Resort can enjoy a horse-riding trek around the region or even a spot of fishing.
