About this park
There is no vehicular access and no infrastructure within the park. The best way to see the park is by air. There are tour flights available over the Drysdale River area from Kununurra, Wyndham and Broome.
Drysdale River National Park features a diverse landscape of open woodlands and the broad waters of the Drysdale River. There are pools, creeks, rugged cliffs and gorges. And waterfalls? Yes, those too! The park has major waterfalls at Morgan Falls and Solea Falls.
Bushwalking can be undertaken in the park, but requires a permit from Parks and Wildlife Kununurra Office (08) 9168 4200. This park is isolated and the terrain is very rugged, you must be completely self sufficient and competent in undertaking extended walks.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
All visitors accessing the park must obtain a permit from Parks and Wildlife Kununurra Office (08) 9168 4200, firstname.lastname@example.org
A application form will need to be filled out requiring information on proposed dates, number of people, access details, communications and other safety equipment and a map. Note that permits will not be issued between January and May due to prescribed burning operations.
Just because there isn’t a sign doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don’t swim, canoe or use small boats in waterways. For more information contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
