Flight 1 Coastal Cliffs tour at $55.00 pp (20mins)
See Kalbarri & its spectacular Coastal Cliffs from the Air
This is one of the best value flights in the whole of Australia – a great introduction for the children, and people who have not flown before.
It is one our most action packed and exciting trips with sights to take in the whole way! Taking off from Kalbarri Airport, we fly towards the town and low along the beachfront before heading at cliff top height past the coastal cliffs with their lovely red sedimentary rock colours. On past the surfing beach, we reach Red Bluff, Rainbow Gorge and a series of connecting gorges before returning, past the cliffs and low over the Kalbarri beach strip back to the airport.
This great value flight allows you to experience the coastal cliffs, castle rock and the natural bridge from a perspective which demonstrates their true magnificence and grandeur.
The Tumblagooda Sandstone that makes up the majority of the Kalbarri region is what you will see both from the sky and the ground in the impressive red cliffs rising more than 100m cut by the sea.
These cliffs are part of what was once was (400-500 million years ago) a large tidal sand flats system which irregularly bordered a sizable river plain spanning around 100km. The tidal range is thought to have been larger than it is today with the red and white successive layers of sand bedding stained by iron oxides formed in the oxygen rich environment.
The sequences seen on the costal cliffs are higher up the stratigraphic sequence (younger) than the gorges in-land and show much larger scale bedding deposition than the up-stream gorges due to a higher energy coastline than the wide, flat braided river plain sequences that deposited the thin beds in the river gorges.
Flight 2 Gorges and Coastal Cliffs tour at
$149.00 pp (45mins)
Spectacular Murchison River Gorges & Cliffs
This is a must-do Kalbarri experience. You see so much more from the air, and our flight offers dramatic perspective and a true impression of the Gorges’ immense scope and scale.
In addition, unless you are extremely fit and ready for long climbing walks, you will not get a real grasp of the Gorges from the ground. The lookouts only cover a very small potion of the gorges, and miss many of the highlights.
After takeoff, we head out towards the rugged and breathtaking Kalbarri National Park past Ross Graham lookout and then along the full length of the Murchison River Gorges.
The river has cut through the sandstone, allowing you to view steep rock faces with stunning white, red and purple rock layers as you pass close by. Many of these amazing wonders of Nature are inaccessible, and un-viewable, except by air.
After overpassing Hawkeshead, Little Z Bend, Big Z Bend, the Four Ways (an interesting formation of the river going one way and then two large cuts coming in from both directions). We overfly the loop taking in scenery from a totally different perspective. From the loop with overfly Murchison house station on our way to Kalbarri township which we overfly following the river to the river mouth then along the coastal cliffs, passing the cliffs as described in our Coastal Cliffs tour before returning to Kalbarri airport.
With an average flight time of 40 minutes, this represents one of our most exciting and best value aerial adventures – an absolute must if you wish to appreciate the full, dramatic splendour and scale of the River Gorges.
