Grevillea Gorge, Charnley Station, Kimberley

  • Less than 1 hour
  • 0.3 km
    • Bush Walk Grade 4

As with most of the walk trails on Charnley River-Artesian Range Wildlife Sanctuary, Grevillea Gorge Walk Trail is very short, only 360 metres one-way. But in its short distance there is a great view at a lookout into a deep gorge with a big pool. Getting to the gorge floor requires some climbing and negotiating a metal ladder. The trail is exceptionally well marked so easy to follow. 

Care is required when climbing down the ladder

The Grevillea Gorge Walk Trail is short, only 360 metres one-way. Despite that, there’s plenty to see. A very short detour takes you to a rock ledge with commanding views into the Grevillea Gorge. Be careful, as there is no railing.

This is a great spot to view the incredible erosive forces of wet season flooding over millennia. A big sweeping curve in the steep gorge wall is vivid testament of the fact.

The trail continues down into the gorge via some rock scrambling and a solid metal ladder, which bypasses a steep section. Off the ladder, you can walk around shallow water pools, which becomes a wet season torrent that plunges over a ledge into the gorge proper. Do not attempt to climb down the waterfall even if it is dry. It’s very steep and slippery.  This gorge is a stunning place to take your time and explore.
