Charles Knife Road Information

Charles Knife Road in Cape Range National Park leads you up to the top of the spectacular ranges offering awesome views back into the Charles Knife Canyon, the gorges and Exmouth Gulf. If possible try and arrive at the top of the road at sunrise as you will be blessed with an unforgettable sight.

After taking in the views of Exmouth Gulf from Thomas Carter Lookout, take the bush trail that leads through the canyon and offers numerous photographic opportunities.

Located close to Charles Knife Canyon is Shothole Canyon. Take a scenic drive around the canyon and seize the opportunity to stop and examine the colourful layers of the rock face. Join the walking trail at the bottom of the canyon to explore much of the national park land and look out for some of the resident marsupials.

Charles Knife Road is in the remote town of Exmouth which is 14 hours drive north of Perth. Caution should be taken when exploring the canyons as there can be dangerous loose surfaces. Ensure you bring appropriate footwear and contact the Department of Environment and Conservation for a walk trail guide of the park.
