Carnarvon

Carnarvon is located 904km north of Perth and is the gateway to Kennedy Range and Mount Augustus National Parks. The town’s thriving industries are seafood and fruit and vegetables. Fresh produce is always readily available here.

Pickles Point is the place to purchase fresh seafood of all kinds. Follow Harbour Road towards the small boat harbor and you’ll find many seafood outlets selling prawns, fish, squid, scallops, bugs…all the good stuff. Prawn trawlers frequent the harbour here and bait, tackle and ice are available.

carnarvon-foreshore

The town foreshore is very picturesque, lined with tall palm trees and green grass. The pathway along the inlet makes a nice walking or cycling experience. Picnic shelters and barbeques are provided for your convenience.

A canal with a small beach runs off the inlet in town. It’s a nice spot for a dip or canoeing in the canal.

Heritage Precinct is located off Babbage Island Road. Investigate old trains and the restored Kimberley Steam Train used in the mid 1900’s, explore the historic lighthouse keeper’s museum or grab a snack at the kiosk.
carnarvon-one-mile-jetty One Mile Jetty is located near the precinct. This national heritage listed jetty was the first in the world to assist in the loading of livestock on ships. The jetty is a popular fishing spot as a deep channel is located at the end. Fish species commonly caught include Snapper, Tailor, Mackerel, Bream and Shark.

carnarvon-beach

South of the One Mile Jetty is Pelican Point where a boat ramp is located. Beach access is available along Pelican Point Road and public toilets and outdoor showers are provided here.

Kennedy Range National Park is located 233km northeast of the township via Woolwagon Pathway. The park is quite small and can easily be explored in a day. The views of the ranges are remarkable and the colours are impressive. Definitely worth a look if you’re visiting the Gascoyne Region. carnarvon-kennedy-ranges

Carnarvon’s fabulous climate averaging 26 degrees throughout the year with low rainfall makes it a destination you can escape to with highly probable good weather which is what we all desire when holidaying.
