Redbank Gorge was the furthest out we travelled in the West Macs but well worth the time. Access to the gorge is mostly via the creekbed, which means walking in sand and scrambling over rocks. View at the end is well worth it. Still had...More

The trail into the gorge is approx. 2 km and an easy walk until you get to the dry riverbank, then it gets a bit challenging to the waterhole. The trail gets rockier, no trail signs and basically you make your own way over large...More

As the 'final' gorge along the West MacDonnells this one is missed by some people and the unsealed corrugated road in doesn't help. That didn't stop a selfish young couple from coming in with their babies letting them 'sing', talk and cry ruining the experience...More

This is a magical place, but at times the water can be freezing cold even though the outside temperature is starting to soar. Few travelers or tourists make it this far but it is well worth the trip. It can be done in an easy...More

This was definitely worth the 25 minute walk. In my opinion the best we did that day. Nice and calm but no facilities. Take enough water but as I said, it’s worth it!

This was by far my favourite "waterhole" to visit on this road. Its a beautiful 20 min walk in on both rocks and sand (i managed it with an 18 month old in a baby carrier) and its just a beautiful calm peaceful place to...More

This was one of our favourites, it's not an easy walk to get to the end of the gorge but worth it as it's very pretty. Don't believe the 20 minute return sign it takes longer only because you are clamouring over rocks to eventually...More
