A pleasant 3 km walk in along a sandy track. The escarpment above is very beautiful. When you reach the rainforest continue on further over the rocky path till you reach a small Rockpool in amongst tall rainforest trees. Lots of large boulders. Attractive but...More

This area is a picteresque walk through open woodland and rocky escarpment that takes a meandering 3kms to get to a pristine creek where shade is no problem and swimming a divine reward for the trek in. I highly recommend visiting this site at any...More

Gubara has great swimming, especially after the 3 kilometre walk in. The walk out was easier than expected because we soaked our clothing and hats in water before starting out. We stayed relatively cool on the walk because of that. The walk was worth it,...More
