Boating on the Murchison River Kalbarri


The Murchison River, which meets the Indian Ocean at the township of Kalbarri, is a beautiful wide, clean river that is well worth spending some time enjoying. With your own tinny, or a hired one from the business located opposite the shops, you can navigate upstream a reasonable way and enjoy the cliffs and farmland that surround the river.

The boat hire was reasonably priced and you do not need a licence to be able to hire a boat.

Dine at Finlay's Restaurant Kalbarri


Finlay's began life as a seafood supplier to various parts of Australia, but when the pilot's strike of the 1980's struck, it morphed out of necessity into a restaurant. The thinking was "if we can't get the produce to the market, then let's get the market to come to us"

It is this classic Aussie approach that the restaurant is built around. It is great value and has great food, but more than that, it has a fantastic and a genuinely Australian atmosphere. It feels and looks like you have slipped down to your mates place and are having dinner in his back shed.

It is extremely popular with travellers, although I am not sure the latte set and those striving for sophistication will like it too much.

Kalbarri is a small town (600kn north of Perth) and in the small industrial area to the east of the town is where you will find Finlay's. It is well worth doing.
