If ever there is a place in Western Australia that you may feel as though you have visited even though you have never been there, it's Karijini Nationa Park.
The jewel of the Pilbara is one of the state's best known tourist attractions. Its natural sites - its gorges, falls, cliffs and canyons - have been photographed many times and have appeared in many tourist advertising and marketing campaigns promoting not only the Pilbara, but Western Australia.
And it's unlikely that we will tire of them.
Name of sites such as Fortescue Falls, Hancock Gorge, Over Lookout and Weano Gorge may already be familiar to some who are reading this - even if they have never stood in front of them. If the names aren't ringing any bells, then images more will.
Covering 627,442 hectares, Karijini is WA's second largest national park (The Pilbara's 1.2 million hectare Rudall River National Park is the biggest). It boasts many walking trails, each offering it's own visual rewards along the way.
