About this hike

This walk in Mutawintji National Park takes you on a 6KM return hike to one of the best gorges in the local area. With glorious natural pools, amazing red cliffs and a feeling of complete remoteness in Outback New South Wales, this challenging walk is a great day out exploring the best of the region.

Track Overview

Starting from Mutawintji Gorge Carpark, this hike follows the Mutawintji Gorge Walk on a loosely marked track (white markers along the way). Keep following this track as it mostly follows the creek until the trail starts to enter an old creek bed. Follow this creek bed and keep going as some rock hopping begins, shortly after this point you will find yourself at the gorge where the trail practically disappears and you are free to explore the gorge and waterholes. To complete your hike simply return along the same route back to the carpark and make your way home.
