Definitely for the more fit and energetic but so worth it. Wear good shoes and bring water, go to the right first as then you get to view the ocean as you head back

Parked up and it was pretty busy. Walked down first and walked up the dry river bed which was pebbles and more pebbles. Was pretty warm in here so remember your water. Started the climbs and some were abit tiring. Lots of ups and downs...More

Having been to Shot Hole and Charles Knife canyons, I rate Mandu Mandu Gorge as the best hike of the three. You begin by walking through the dry riverbed next to the limestone cliffs. Be ready to spot rock wallabies and the vegetation that clings...More

Similar to Yardie Creek but with no water. I've never walked on a riverbed of white pebbles before so this was a first for me. They contrasted beautifully with the red rocks. Once you climb up out of the riverbed you soon realise why it's...More

This is certainly a level 4 hiking trail. Rough underfoot walking on dry creek bed of round pebbles/stones. Some very steep ascent and descent. But view from the top is beautiful. For the fit it would take 1 hour.

A 3km walking trail allows access into this dry gorge that should only be walked in the cooler months of the year between April and November.

A challenging but rewarding walk close to the North Mandu turn off. Great views of the reef from the top of the Gorge. Best to go early morning before it gets too hot. Take plenty of water and wear good walking shoes and plenty of...More

A sunrise walk through the creek and up the gorge is highly recommended. If you set off at 5.30am you will be able to see the sun rise up from behind the Cape Range mountains to the East. Watch as the sun filters through and...More
