This gorge walk give great views and can be walked both ways so you can do the creek bed first or the climb first. Make sure you take lots of water and have good walking shoes

This is not a walk for those who are not steady on their feet... As others have said, the first km or so of the walk is on dry river pebbles at the base of the gorge - the white pebbles contrasting with the red...More

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

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.
