The walk down is definitely worth the hefty climb back up! Stunning waterholes, rock formations, colours & an easy stroll once you reach the bottom. Take bathers and a towel if you like a swim. Will take about 1-1.5 hrs including photography and a few...More

Amazing spot to enjoy during the day or even to sleep in the campground. Do not just stay in the lookout, go down in the 2km return hike and have a swim in the gorge. A total beauty.

Good spot for a walk and camping. Toilets are available but no showers. Great to see water in the gorge and the walk down was easier than coming back up!

I don't believe there are tours from Hughenden. It's a sealed road out to the gorge and the walking tracks are clearly marked. You could ring the discovery centre the tourist information centre to find out more.
