Stretching over 620,000 hectares (1.5 million acres), Karijini National Park is best known for its gorges, waterfalls and water holes. While I did spend a good deal of time at these major attractions, I found myself curiously taken with the journey it took to get there.
Due to the high iron content of the soil, the rocks and dirt in the park are brilliant red. Particularly in the soft light of dawn and dusk, the narrow dirt roads reverberate with colour and the intricate textures of the landscape really come out.
What better reason to rise before the dawn than to watch this quiet dirt road greet the sun and to follow it around the corner, unfolding the adventures of the day.
