Karijini National Park is located in Hamersley Ranges, Pilbara region. It is the northwestern part of Western Australia. It is about 1,055 km apart from Perth, the capital city of West Australia. It is previously well known as Hamersley National Park. However, in 1991, it gets new name: Karijini National Park. As Karijini Park is 627,442 hectares width, it becomes the second largest national park in Western Australia. Physically, this National Park of Karijini is split by a corridor which includes the Hamersley and Robe River railway and the Marandoo iron ore mine into two separated parts: northern part and southern part.

Karijini National Park is firstly explored by F.T. Gregory in 1861. His friend, Edward Hamersley, becomes the inspiration of the national park’s name. It has tropical semi-arid climate which means it has some thunderstorms and cyclones in summer. It rains about 250-350 mm annually. The temperatures are around 40 degrees in summer days. In the other hand, frost may happen in winter nights.

Karijini: Home for Aborigins, Tropical Plants and Animals

Karijini National Park is homeland for Banyjima, Kurrama, and Innawonga Aboriginal people. In this National Park of Karijini, many wildflowers grow in every season. Its land is covered by yellow-flowering cassias and wattles, northern bluebells and purple mulla-mullas in moths with cooler weather. By the rain, many plants will be blooming. Besides, it also becomes home for many various birds, red euros and kangaroos, rock-wallabies, echidnas and some species of bats. Reptiles like geckoos, dragons, goannas, lizards, phythons, and snakes  are also living in this Karijini Park.

Karijini National Park is the special place where you can find some natural phenomena, such as asbestos, gorges, and dingoes that you may not find in any other place. However, you should be very careful with those natural phenomena. Blue asbestos in Yampire and Wittenoom Gorges, for instance, may harm by its dust if you accidentally inhale it. You also should stay away from the edges of Gorges. Flash flood may happen in rainy season. However, National Park of Karijini still becomes recommended place to visit in West Australia.
