Karijini Visitors Centre
Twisting through the Hamersley Ranges, now famous for iron ore deposits, lies Karijini National Park, with Karijini being the Banyjima name for this area. Visitors can explore the ancient country of the Banyjima, Kurrama and Innawonga peoples. Karijini Visitor Centre merges into the surrounding hills and is situated near spectacular gorges and rockholes, created by Warlu the rainbow serpent. The Centre provides a welcome entry point for visitors to the country, its people and the fauna and flora of the national park. The centre itself is in the shape of a goanna – the tail a symbol of the history, the body and stomach representing the body of Aboriginal Law, and the head representing the future. Every year the park hosts the Karijini Experience, which is a week-long event of music, food, and art, held in the first week of first term holidays in Western Australia.
