Oxers Lookout is a .5km, grade 2 Return hike located in Karijini National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Starting at the Weano day use area, the 800 metre walk trail between Oxer and Junction Pool lookout is not to be missed. Many consider the view from Oxers Lookout to be one of the most spectacular sights in WA if not Australia. The walk trail over the plateau barely prepares you for the gaping hole that lays ahead.

If you do one thing in Karijini National Park, take the short 15 minute walk from the Weano Car Park to Oxers Lookout. Take a breath and peer over the edge. Sheer walls plunge 100 metres or more to the gorge floor of layered rock and languid pools. Just as well there is a secure safety railing because it comes up suddenly and can be quite dizzying. For the geological minded, the lookout is a great location for witnessing the ancient natural elements that carved this massive gash in the red earth. The view looks over the junction of Weano, Red, Hancock and Joffre Gorges.
