The Kennedy Range is situated within the boundaries of the Kennedy Range National Park which is managed by the Department of Environment and Conservation.
The Kennedy Range itself is a huge mesa 75 km long and up to 25 km wide, running North to South. The Southern and eastern sides of the range have eroded to form spectacular cliffs that rise up to 100metres above the Lyons River Valley plain. The eastern to the Kennedys is approximate 50 kms from Gascoyne Junction along the Ullawarra Road.
Access to the Western side of the Ranges is via a road which goes through Jimba Jimba Pastoral station. This road is recommended only for high clearance 4WD’s. The road is rough, rocky and subject to closures after rain.
For four months of the year there are volunteer rangers on hand at the camping grounds to help visitors get the most out of their stay in this wonderful place.
