Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tide as out when went so water was down a bit but still a great place to just go for a stroll and to enjoy the spender of this river estuary.

Interesting, informative and entertaining skipper Grant from Kalbarri Wilderness cruises from the mouth of the Murchison River up river. Grant had a good knowledge of the river and the sand banks and we got off the boat up river to explore the area for a short time. Well worth the time spent on the river

Bush flies are real nuisance. Good footwear needed for rocky track. We saw our first free emus, kangaroos, lots of snake. Take some careful steps to the lookout. Take sun screen, hats, shades and water aplenty.

It was very upsetting to see such a beautiful place ruined by people. The views of the river are beautiful, but walking along the shore wasn't very nice. It was full of rubbish, bottle tops, cigarette butts and fishing line. My husband and I were really shocked to see how dirty and run down the whole place has become. Very sad.

Stayed at Anchorage caravan park, have stayed there before and enjoyed it, However this time we were squashed in like sardines. Paying a premium for such a small site. People walking thru your sites all the time because there are not a lot of allocated walk ways to the amenities. I asked for a person to be moved closer to us and was told by a staff member (she acted like she had no interest in helping) that they were fully booked however a site straight opposite us remained empty for two days. Pool lovely. Abolution block is fine and clean, however the poor cleaner there are some pigs out there (Ladies) not the parks fault. Site should be bigger especially for the money u pay. Location is good.

Great view from Chainman's Point where the river meets the Indian Ocean. Interesting to see a blue sea and within the basin, water with a green hue. Plenty of activity with small boats and families trying their luck angling. I have to admit that I would like to see the river in full spate.

The best view to see the river meeting the Indian Ocean is from Chinaman's point especially during sunset. There's ample parking space and just a short walk up to the view point. Highly recommended.

We took our inflatable tender up the river during high tide. Navigation/gps for water depths is useful, you can also follow the Kalbarri boat hire markers to take you through the channel but after that ur on your own, so be careful of submerged surprises haha

Take the left canal when you get to the island.

Beautiful views, lots of birds and fish jumping out of the water

The Murchison River is beautiful. So calm and peaceful. Lovely sight first thing in the morning. Plenty of things to see and do along the foreshore. Great spot for a leisurely stroll.

You could just park and sit and look. Beautiful and peaceful, or you could hire a paddle board or boat and go upstream. Lots of options, but spectacular on a good day. Parking and toilets handy.
