Arkaroo Rock is a loop walk. The walk says about 1 hour to the Rock art, but it will probably take less depending on your fitness. Glad we wore trainers and a hat! The paths are quite easy to follow - meandering along a creek...More

Easy walk in, and beautiful canyon. Definitely worth a look. Kids loved looking at the aboriginal drawings and the big gum trees out the back of the canyon.

A moderate grade walk in spectacular scenary. Whilst we have seen better this is still worth the 60-70min return walk.
