Z-Bend and The Loop is just a beautiful stop within the mesmerising Kalbarri National Park. It is a short drive from Natures Window and is free to see once you have paid at the entry station into the N.P.
There's a small car park and then a short, easy walk downhill through the bushes on a relatively good path to the Z Bend lookout. Obviously climb up on the main rocky outcrop for beautiful views of the z Bend in the river, but also make sure to go down the little ravine to the left of the rock as you approach for a lovely framed view of the gorge below.

We did the 2.6km walk. Going down was a little hairy but it was well worth the effort. This has some amazing scenery that you don't want to miss. Could be a little hard if you are lacking fitness or agility.

My 13 year old daughter and I completed this beautiful hike in approx 3 hours setting off from Natures Window at sunrise around 07-25. Half the 8km walk is along the cliff edge, the other half on a sandy river bed with a tiny bit of scrambling on ledges in the middle. Stunning rock formations and plenty of bird life (plus a herd of wild goats).

Whilst I appreciate that the National Park signs warning “that people have died on this trek” are true, I find such comments unnecessary. Brochures etc state that the walk is closed after 7am, I assume in summer only but that os not stated explicitly. Signage and guides should be improved and updated accordingly. Why don’t the authorities simply close the walk period in summer if it’s so dangerous with those temperatures.

Beautiful, stunning landscape, insert any other superlative you want. And then just add flies to the mix. Loved the views up the gorge.

We did the Loop walk mid May. We were told to arrive early and were glad we did. We started the walk at sunrise and it took just over 3 hours. That excludes the time to walk to natures window and back which is another 1 km. The walk is spectacular. You walk across the ridge and then head down to the river, the river stretch is about 3km into the walk and is rocks first and then becomes sand. The rock stretch is the hardest bit, here you are walking along the rocks and there is one pinch point where you have the climb through a small rock area to get across. We found that the hardest part but took it slow and managed it. The climb out over the last 500m is steep but manageable. Take extra water as it is much hotter down in the gorge, we also had fly nets as the flies were bad along the last stretch next to the river. Look out for the swans and don’t forget your camera. The loop is a great walk and well worth it - how else can you see the river up close and get into the gorge! If you are going in summer remember that they close the trail at 7am.
