Glamping in Karijini National Park

Climbing, swimming, waterfall gazing, hiking, and adventuring by day into four billion years of the Earth's history is going to leave us not only wanting more, but also wanting a nice place to camp - er, glamp - for the night.

And that has brought our search to the Karijini Eco Retreat, the first and only permanent luxury accommodation within the Park. It looks somewhat similar to the camping we did in the Serengeti, only Western Australia style, with an "outback fusion style" restaurant, whatever that means!

Besides being one of the largest and most beautiful national parks in Australia, it's also highly accessible. Weano Gorge seems like a must-visit, with winding narrow gorges, and the option to jump down waterfalls and climbing out from the depths people refer to as "The Centre of the Earth."

For us, the nature is also calling us to Karijini -- with mulga, spinifex, eucalypts, melaleuca and some 50 varieties of acacia, along with the wildlife sighting possibilities - euro (rock wallaby), dingoes, 133 species of birds and 92 species of amphibians and reptiles.

*** Help us plan our dream trip to Australia in 2014! We're leaving notes about places we WANT to see. Since neither of us have been, we're looking for your in-the-know recommends. Leave a comment or note for us with our tag #voyagetooz. Cheers in advance! ***
