  • Easy walk to the gorge from the carpark as well as some short and easy hikes to the lookout. Start early in hot weather as the top of the gorge is quite exposed. Water was cold but refreshing and kids...  more »
  • There is so much to enjoy at this stop, a great walk, a super gorge with a wet area, wallabies on the cliff face and reasonable bird numbers too. The little cafe at the car park is worth a visit.  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!
