  • Great walk. Takes 3 hours with very little shade. Make sure you take plenty of water. Well worth the effort.  more »
  • The natural beauty is always here even when the flies are numerous. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on the sand.  more »
  • 5 minutes walk to the waterhole, has a cafe open 10-4 each day, has great coffee. Track signs for pound loop is not very obvious along the way, may get lost if walking reverse loop so I recommend follow the loop direction showing on the map do not start walking from the opposite direction for reverse loop.
  • This is a spectacular gorge that i have been to so far. Highly recommended!
