About this park
There are no visitor facilities and no marked walk trails within the park. It’s safer and more comfortable to see the park by air. A number of tours incorporating flights over the Drysdale River area are available from Kununurra and Wyndham.
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.
To drive into this area, you must be totally self-sufficient. It’s remote, isolated and the terrain is extremely rugged. If you are planning extended walks, you must be experienced bushwalkers and aware of the potential hazards that could be encountered. Bush camping in the park is permitted but please care for the area. Leave no trace of your visit to protect this wilderness.
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 (including via Carson River Station) must register with Parks and Wildlife’s Kununurra office (08 9168 4200). Please advise in person or phone of proposed dates, number of people, vehicle details, communications and your itinerary.
Pay attention to all warning signs, however just because a sign isn’t there doesn’t mean crocodiles aren’t present. If you are unsure don't swim, canoe or use small boats in estuaries, tidal rivers or pools and contact the nearest Parks and Wildlife office.
