Sometimes it is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer immensity of the Kennedy Ranges and miss the finer detail. This trail ends at a curved water-smoothed rockface that becomes a raging waterfall after heavy rain. What is most fascinating is the cavities that honeycomb big sections of the rock face formed by erosion. How did all those rocks get into the cavities way above head level?  

There are six walk trials in the park – Temple Gorge, Honeycomb Gorge, Drapers Gorge, the Escarpment Trail (leading to the top of the range), the Escarpment Base Trail, and Sunrise View.
