From Red Bluff, extensive views south overlook colourful sandstone cliffs with views of coastal limestone to the north.
Back to Park
A short, universally access walk leads to Red Bluff lookouts where information signs explain the intriguing history of the area.
Just north of Red Bluff is Wittecarra Creek, believed to be the site of the first permanent landing of Europeans in Australia. In 1629 the Dutch East India trading vessel Batavia was wrecked on the Abrolhos Islands, southwest of Kalbarri. Following the wreck a small group of mutineers massacred 125 of the surviving men, women and children. Whilst most of the ringleaders were executed, two of the conspirators, Wouter Loos and Jan Pelgromm, were landed on the Kalbarri mainland, near the mouth of Wittecarra Creek. Their ultimate fate is unknown.
