This place is definitely worth the trek. I will say Kermits pool is pretty photoshopped in the pics you see online. I didn't actually realise I was in Kermits Pool until my friend pointed it out. The Spider Walk was definitely not that hard and...More

Loved walking through all of the gorges, but Hancock Gorge had amazing views and breath taking scenery. A must do.

Did a day trip to Hancock with Flying Sandgroper tours, amazing! Could have spent all day here but so many beautiful gorges to see.

This gorge walk is short - less than 400m return but you should allow a couple of hours. It's a Class 5 so there's plenty of rock to negotiate. First it's small bouldery rocks, then, as the gorge narrows a slippery creek bed some of...More

I am sorry but I put my Hancock Gorge review into Hammersley Gorge reviews. Thus I will put our review of Hammersley here. After circumnavigating the major area of the Park this was our Second Gorge stop for our first day. We were blown away...More
