Lovely walk to the river, stunning views and beautiful wild flowers. We really have to climb but it was worth it. Z bend river trail looks like the shortest hike at 2.6km has and can be done with kids.

Tons of tourists visit Nature's Window, and while that is pretty, the real attraction here is the spectacular Loop walk. It's almost 10km in total, and will take you around 3 hours or so altogether. But the views are absolutely stunning, with parts along the...More

Only did the Z Bend lookout as time was of an essence. But really enjoyed the view and a good lookout that gives you a great look at the gorge & winding river below. The Loop is actually the lookouts above Natures Window , with...More

This was an amazing 9km walk. We started at Nature's Window for sunrise and set off early. This walk is not for the faint hearted but all young people would probably have no trouble. I am 64. You do get a warning when you reach...More
