You can tell as you approach the Tablelands by car that it is going to be something special and it is...one minute, you feel like you are in Newfoundland and the next minute, you think you are in the desert. The hike is not hard...More

No, I did not see aliens but as you ascend the path at this landmark, you can easily get the feeling you are walking on another planet. We missed the guided tour but had the opportunity to speak with the guide before beginning our climb...More

This hike was very cool, especially for this amateur geology fanatic. The earth's mantle is a 3000 km layer under the earth's crust that is exposed at this park. The rock you see here is like no other and kept me captivated. If you don't...More

This is definitely a "must do" hike. You can do the short hike (6km return). You can also get a map at the discovery centre and venture further on our own or take the guided off path hike. I wish we had done that and...More

This is a really great hike for beginners or people who just don’t like hills. It only took about 2 hours to do but if you aren’t going to stop to take pictures it probably wouldn’t take that long. The views are great and is...More

Even from far away, you know this is a special place. Other areas are green with vegetation, this place is reddish from all the iron oxide and with very few plants because of the heavy metals in the soil. Due to an accident of history,...More

The official park map doesn't show, but there's another one, available at Visitor Centre for a small fee, that has the unmarked portion of the trail which goes to the top of this formation. It definitely worth doing as the market part is short and,...More

Like nothing else in North America. Riveting experience, even for those of us who are not scientifically inclined. Loved it.

You can buy he back country trail map from the visitors centre and it has all the GPS coordinates that you need to complete the 12-15km loop. It costs $3 or $5 for the waterproof version. But be warned. Just did the loop... More

If you travel in September, you don't need to reserve campsites. After Labour Day the visitor traffic drops dramatically. For our 3 week trip, I would guess vacancy is about 80%. The ferries aren't as busy either, you could... More
