Bigurda Trail is a 8km, grade 3 one way hike, located in Kalbarri National Park, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The eight kilometre Bigurda Trail hugs the coastline between Eagle Gorge and Natural Bridge, providing stunning coastal views.  Arrange to be dropped off at Eagle Gorge and traverse south along the coastal cliffs for 3 to 5 hours, finishing up at the Natural Bridge.

South of Kalbarri township lies a long stretch of coastal cliffs. Here the Indian Ocean butts up against the ancient Australian landmass, creating steep chasms, rocky inlets and bizarre formations, as it relentlessly carves away at the multi-coloured layers of sandstone and limestone. A string of lookouts dots the impressive coast south of town and the easy Bigurda Trail (8km one way) follows the cliff tops between Natural Bridge and Eagle Gorge ; from July to November you may spot migrating whales. Closer to town are Pot Alley, Rainbow Valley, Mushroom Rock and Red Bluff, the last accessible via a walking trail from Kalbarri (5.5km one way).n

About the region

Kalbarri National Park surrounds the lower reaches of the Murchison River, which has cut a magnificent 80km gorge through the red and white banded sandstone to create formations such as Nature’s Window and The Loop, Z-Bend and Hawks Head, with scenic gorge views at the Ross Graham Lookout and views of the town and river mouth at Meanarra Hill.
