We did this with our 3 year old twins. It was HOT and we had to piggyback them part of the way. It was a long walk. But when we finally got there it was amazing! Very cold but a surprising thermal section which was beautifully warm. The waterfall is spectacular and we didn't want to leave.

Emma gorge and the mineral springs pictured here is a must see for all visitors to the area. You have to be fit to climb to Emma gorge, but the springs are an easy walk.

After a medium walk to the end of Emma Gorge we come to a wonderful clean cool waterhole with ferns growing on the vertical surfaces and water dripping down the walls. It was a refreshing (and very cool!) swim. Personally I preferred the small hot spring situated to the right edge of the waterhole where I spent a long time... More

Emma's Gorge at the end of the hike is nature's reward for your perseverance. The sparkling, cool pond that replenishes from the fall of water through the crags of the Gorge is one of the best places in the Kimberley to truly appreciate the diversity of the Australian outback.

Well worth the walk, although I recommend very early in the day and good walking shoes! A nice swim at the end is essential, we made it with all our various medical issues and so did our 7 yr old, minimal complaints from him too! Swim shoes would be good for the pool at the end to make walking easier... More

Follow the marked rocky path through the gorge all the way to the end and see the waterfall. It is also a great swimming hole so take your bathers (swimmers, cozzies) and spend a good hour relaxing and cooling off. Take some snacks and drinks and good hiking shoes. also take some water shoes because the pool floor is very... More

The road into the gorge resort was very rough, suitable only for a 4WD. There was a charge to visit, as this is not a National Park... it is privately owned. The walk to the gorge itself gets very rugged and there were big boulders to climb over. It took a long time to get there and back. The waterhole... More

The walk in is a bit tough, but not too bad. Definitely wear shoes and not thongs. The swimming pool is fantastic and sits at the very end of the gorge, with the water coming down from maybe 30 metres above you. It is stunning.

A fair hours walk each way in 40 degrees, and not for the unfit but really worth it with the pool at the end, such a beautiful spot
