Beautiful place to walk. Nice outing with the family down to The Drip. There weren't many people on the day we went. Will be lovely when they finish updating it and the picnic area.

This is a great walk along an ancient gorge, with a meandering river. Lots of birdlife and the outstanding view was a flock of Emu, who scattered when they heard me.

An interesting walk along a creek in a small sandstone gorge . Wildflowers were a bonus. Well formed track and not too strenuous.

Hi, We saw 2 red-bellied black snakes... if I had my dogs I would definitely have them on leads just in case.

Hi, Just wondering if this walk would be ok with a baby in a carrier (not a pram)? Cheers!

Yes, however, there is one bit where it is a bit narrow to get through some rocks, so you might have to take the baby out at that stage. It is not a difficult walk if you are used to doing bush walks.
