Well worth the time to get out of your car or bus and go for a walk. Interesting area with a variety of flora and fauna.

Make time to walk up into the gorge when you are visiting the Olgas, it is well worth the effort. It’s not a particularly difficult walk but it is a bit steep in places.

This gorge is well worth visiting. The incredible rock formations (conglomerate sandstone) that you walk across will stay with you forever.

Short walk but wonderful at sunset. Changing colours are amazing. Great exploration and shorter walk than others in the area

We only had time for a short hike and chose here. The walk while not hard, is over rocky ground with some inclines. The atmosphere however was electric. Very glad we did this.

Reasonably easy walk into the gorge & back. Plenty of photo opportunities. Strategically placed benches allow you have a sit, rest or take in the views. Walk into gorge ends with a platform with seating so you can rest, take happy snaps or just take...More

This was one of the most beautiful walks in the park. The walk is fairly easy the whole way up into the gorge. It has a very different view than any of the others walks and provides a good view of the surrounding park and...More
