About Mid West

The Midwest is home to the world-famous Pinnacles Desert and Kalbarri National Park. Only four kilometres inland from the beach, the amazing Pinnacles are one of the State's favourite and most unique attractions. The drive through Nambung National Park on the way to the Pinnacles allows visitors the fantastic opportunity to see kangaroos and emus in their natural environment. Kalbarri National Park is arguably one of the best National Parks in Australia. A main feature is the winding Murchison River, which has cut magnificent red and white banded gorges for 80 kilometres through the Park, as it carves its way to the sea. The Mid West region is also home to one of the most diverse & colourful range of plants in the world. The most spectacular time of the year to visit is between July to October, when the flowers' riotous colours fight for your attention. Be sure too, to take advantage of the fantastic pristine waters of the region- go fish from the beach, surfing, diving or canoeing.
