$7.7 million revamp for Kalbarri National Park
A $7.7million upgrade of the magnificent Kalbarri National Park, designed to boost tourism in Western Australia’s Mid-West region, has been officially opened by Western Australian Environment Minister Albert Jacob.
The major investment by the Western Australian Government’s Royalties for Regions program in one of the State’s most popular national parks includes a $5.8 million upgrade of part of the Loop-Z Bend access road and new facilities at two popular visitor sites.
Minister Jacob explained “shade shelters, lookouts, walking trails, visitor information areas, sealed car parks and toilets have been added at the Loop and Inyaka Wookai Watju (West Loop lookout).
“Sealing of 12 kilometres of the old road, which was in poor condition and had to be closed after heavy rainfall during the peak holiday season, has vastly improved access and safety for tourists visiting the area.
“Thanks to the addition of 85 parking bays, more visitors can now enjoy the Loop site, home to the stunning Nature’s Window rock arch.
“At nearby Inyaka Wookai Watju, a new car park and walking trail now leads to a wonderful lookout spot.”
The Minister said the significant upgrades were an example of the types of projects being delivered as part of the State Government’s $40.7 million Parks for People initiative aimed at providing WA families with more low-cost, high-quality holiday options.
He added, the Western Australian “Government is investing significant funds to provide more affordable options for families to holiday at home and for tourists to our State to experience the magnificent natural wonders in our diverse and beautiful national parks.”
Acting Western Australian Regional Development Minister Terry Waldron said the $7.5million provided by Royalties for Regions supported the Government’s vision to improve tourism facilities and ensure regional Western Australia was more accessible than ever before.
Minister Waldron concluded “regional WA has some of the world’s most beautiful sights and now more holidaymakers will be able to visit these stunning destinations at a more affordable cost."
