This is fabulous walk that rewards with spectacular views back to the coast and over the Ningaloo Reef.
There's a small car park off the main road 14km south of the Milyering Discovery Centre.
The trail leads down into the creek bed where you follow the base of the gorge and from here there's a pleasant, occasionally steep 3km return walk onto the gorge rim then back to the car park..
There is no permanent water and very little shade. Early mornings are often the best times to view wildlife as you walk. Only attempt gorge walks in the cooler months of the year between April and November.
The path very soon descends into the dry creek bed and it is well marked.
There are lots of wildflowers about in September/October and it is amazing how they survive and thrive in such dry places.
The stones can be a little difficult to walk on but they don't last too long.
After about a kilometre you will leave the creek bed and start to climb.
The path is a bit rough and the small stones can move underfoot, but just take it slowly.
As you climb you begin to get a different perspective of the landscape.
Past the the creek bed you start to see Ningaloo and the Indian Ocean.
A magnificent view to Ningaloo and beyond that is definitely worth the effort.
It's really not as scary as it looks, but take it slowly and enjoy.
The landscape really is beautiful and the well-used path is quite obvious.
The initial descent is a little steepish off the summit.
There are some interesting scrubby bushes, sorry I don't know their name.
Go slowly over this little stretch as there are a couple of rocks to clamber over as you come down the path.
Some very beautiful flowers, I wish I knew their names....
Some really interesting conglomerations including this one that looks like it has been sanded back.
Back to the carpark. What a wonderful walk, we were lucky that after we left we went back via the Milyering Discovery Centre for an ice-cream and to get information on more walks!
