Joffre Gorge: Can you see the sunbathers?
Previously known as Hamersley National Park, the name of the park was changed in recognition of the traditional owners of the land: the Aboriginal Banyjima, Kurrama, Yindjibarndi and Innawonga tribes, who called the area Karijini. These tribes have lived in the region for more than 20,000 years. The Yindjibarndi people, in particular, regard Karijini as central to their spiritual and cultural heritage, and ancient rock art and hidden burial caves can be found on the land.
