Unique outback glamping in the heart of the spectacular Karijini National Park.
Karijini Eco Retreat is one of Australia’s leading eco-tourism attractions. Situated 1,500km north of Perth in WA’s second largest national park, the retreat offers “glamping” eco tents, cabins and campsites nestled at the edge of Joffre Gorge, along with an outback style restaurant and access to the park’s walks and guided adventure tours. Explore a wonderland of ancient natural landscapes formed more than two billion years ago – deep gorges, red cliffs, towering waterfalls and emerald green waterholes – among a wide variety of wildflowers and native wildlife. Karijini Eco Retreat is 100% Aboriginal-owned by Gumala Enterprises, proudly representing the Banjima, Yinhawangka and Nyiyaparli people of the Pilbara region.
Karijini National Park is very much a self-drive destination and due to its remote location, guests mostly prefer to drive their own vehicle or a rental vehicle. When travelling through the park to get to the gorges, waterfalls and attractions, you will be driving on a mix of sealed and unsealed roads. We recommend 4WD/AWD vehicles.
All of our accommodation incorporates eco-friendly designs and practices to ensure sustainable management of the natural and cultural values of one of the most ancient landscapes on earth.
The new Luxury Eco Tents offer you bespoke design, local Aboriginal artwork, air-conditioning/heating, king size bed, lounge area, private ensuite bathroom with stone bench tops, an indulgence of space, and pristine bushland views. Includes a‑la-carte breakfast, picnic lunch, complimentary mini-bar, “bush butler” service, daily housekeeping and priority restaurant booking.
The Deluxe Eco Tents feature stylish interiors with quality bedding and linen, bath towels, own private ensuite bathroom, solar powered lights, minimal power for low wattage appliances, in-room safe and a front deck with table and chairs. Continental breakfast is included.
