Cathedral Gorge walk is a moderate 3km, 1 to 2 hour return with narrow ledges and short steep sections with ladders to negotiate. Class 3.
On the way you really get to appreciate the striped sandstone beehive shaped domes, see creek beds, looming cliffs and evidence of the waterfalls that cascade down the steep rock faces during the wet season. The walk ends at a huge amphitheatre where you are dwarfed by the sheer rock walls.
The Domes Walk begins at Piccaninny Creek car park but turns off and does a loop around close to the beehive domes and through the spinifex. This is an easy 1km, 1 hour circuit walk. Class 4
Piccaninny Gorge Walk
30km, Class 5
This 2 to 7 day hike is into a remote and magnificent gorge, with a spur track leading to a lookout over domes and Spinifex- covered grasslands. The first 7 km are relatively easy. It then becomes moderately difficult because walkers will have to negotiate fallen boulders and loose rock.
Walkers must be prepared and take all the appropriate equipment. There is no reliable drinking water in the gorge.
Hikers must register at the visitors centre for the Piccaninny Gorge walk and receive more information.
There are toilets and shaded picnic areas at Piccaninny Creek car park.
