We visited the gorge at about 4pm and had it to ourselves. Its a hard walk and only for the reasonable fit and able. But absolutely breath taking swim and view. Crystal clear cool water and waterfall.

This is a must do must see must swim place. It is breathtakingly beautiful and worth the climb/trek on a hot day. I would visit again.

We drove from Home Valley and had a lovely walk up into the Gorge. We swam in the pool and found the thermal spring to the extreme right, behind the rocks. The walk in and out involved a fair amount of scrambling over rocks, but...More
