Z Bend and Four Ways, WA

Day Trip From: Kalbarri
October 2023

We went back to Kalbarri National Park for a second day to walk the Z Bend River trail and the Four Ways trail, which both start from the same place in the park.

The Z Bend River trail is the most popular – it’s a fairly flat 600m walk to a lookout over the gorge, and then another 800m down to the river with the help of some steps and ladders – so the whole thing is under 3km return. It was pretty busy, but still very enjoyable.

The Four Ways trail was a lot quieter, as it’s steeper and longer – around 6km return. We only saw a few other people on this trail, and the end destination was much more spectacular in our opinion.
