Beautiful gorge, best viewed from Ghost Gum lookout (20 min moderate walk). Take the loop track from the lookout along clifftop to the North end of the gorge, then walk South through the gorge past waterhole. Allow 1.5 hours.

We had a great walk with our guide up into the hills and then down into the gorge. We then jumped across many rocks and then had a break in a wonderful little cafe and a well deserved Iced latte

This site is as spectacular as ever. We visited over twenty five years ago and it did not disappoint.

Had the immense pleasure of being escorted through this area with a traditional custodian. A very sacred and important site for local people and an amazing experience to spend with a traditional custodian.
