Karijini National Park (formerly know as Hamersley Range) is one of Western Australia’s most spectacular parks, and at 6274 square kilometres, it is the second largest in size only to Karlamilyi National Park.
Based in the heart of the Pilbara region some 1200 km north of the capital Perth, Karijini National Park offers visitors rugged gorges, waterfalls, plunge pools, walking trails of various levels and a red beauty that is distinctly north-west Australian.
The Pilbara is generally known as the mining hub of the west, but as the locals will proudly tell you, there is so much more to see than open-cut mines.

So, here I will guide those who feel the same to some of my favourite bars and cocktail lounges in Perth that will make you feel just right.
