Enjoy time at Hawks Head Lookout to view the dramatic Murchison River Gorge. Around the water we may be lucky to spot some of the almost 200 species of birds, including Sea and Wedge-Tailed Eagles that call the river home.

Keep an eye out for the iconic WA Black Swan that breeds by the hundreds in the shallow pools. Visit the wonderfully photogenic Hole in the Rock or “Nature’s Window”, a natural formation in the rock that frames the river perfectly inside it when viewed from the right angle. A day filled with many glorious sights!

We travel onto Pindar to see the rare Wreath Leschenaultia flower – exquisite rings of blooms, each made up of dozens of flowers with frilled petals of red, white and pink. After lunch we will return to Geraldton full of appreciation of the glory of God’s Creation. Relax or explore a little of Geraldton before dinner.
