Don't miss Standley Chasm. It is an easy walk from the car park along a well defined path (also wheel cair friendly).

Easy walk & look closely to see camouflaged rock wallabies. Can cool off when water around. Choose simpler dishes at cafe.

What a great place to visit. The chasm at the end of the walk is beautiful and the walking track there is very easy. It would be brilliant to see this place in the wet

The walk in was easy and the cliffs and chasm are amazing to see. Currently undergoing some upgrades by the looks of it. No info boards just the stands at POI, when finished this will add to the experience.

Stanley chasm is absolutely remarkable and really worth visiting. I didn't mind the $12pp to get in as the path was exceptional. However on returning to the kiosk I ordered a takeaway coffee at $4.50. It was completely undrinkable. This is the first time ever I have thrown out any coffee. The staff do need training on the barista machine... More

We were at Standley Chasm just before noon. This is the time most recommended. The walk into the chasm was quite easy due to the new pathway that had been made 2 weeks prior. The photos I took along the way were probably the best I have ever taken. The end on the chasm is beautiful, the colours, well worth... More

We decided to stay the night and included in our fee was entrance to the chasm and our Motorhome fee. They had showers a washing machine and very friendly staff at the all inclusive cost of $37 for two. A short walk to a beautiful view or several other more energetic walks.
