The mighty Murchison River in Kalbarri National Park is one of the best spots for fishing in Western Australia. Its path through sandstone cliffs and out to the Indian Ocean also makes for a stunning scenic view, excellent bushwalking, hiking, trekking, cruising and canoeing. The Murchison River is a few million years old and time has helped it carve a massive gorge through the park. Spanning 780 kilometres the river is the second longest in Western Australia and is home to nearly 200 species of birds including eagles, black swans and wetland waders. Emus sip from the shore while eagles swoop down to pluck a feed of fish from its pristine waters. Throw in a line at the river's tidal reaches and you're likely to snare a bream, whiting or mulloway. The Murchison River is also home to blue manna crabs and mud crabs. There is a range of tours to the Murchison River including sunset cruises, as well as half day canoe trips. Find out more from the Kalbarri Visitor Centre. Kalbarri is about a seven hour drive or two hour flight from Perth.
