This Gorge is easy to access and is a great place for a swim. You can sit under the beautiful waterfall, swim or just take in the surrounds. We were there on a reasonably quiet part of the day with about 20 other people and...More

There is a relatively short walk to this gorge but not good if you have mobility problems negotiating parts of the track. There are no changing or toilet facilities so if privacy is an issue best change before going. The waterhole is quite lovely for...More

It's a bit of a climb down and back up, but not too bad, and you'll get a great swim at the bottom. Look around and you'll more than likely find some wandjinas painted on rock gallerys.

Short walk through river bed, a couple of larger boulders to negotiate, but still rated easy going. Look for the indigenous art, Windjana, protecting the waterhole.

Timing is every thing sometimes. Just as we arrived a tour group was coming out. So we had the place to ourselves. Nice swimming spot and great view up the cliff above.

We were advised by friends to check this little gorge out and it really was lovely. The water was cool but if you swam over to the falls, the water flowing over the top was much warmer. There are a few rocks to be jumped...More
