Information

Umbrawarra is a striking isolated gorge featuring steep red cliffs, and a small creek that meanders through it in the early to mid-dry season. Visitors can walk alongside the creek to a large pool with a small sandy beach. The rest of the gorge can only be reached by wading, swimming and rock hopping. The Wagiman people speak for this land. Look carefully and you’ll see Aboriginal art on thegorge walls. The carpark near the entrance of the gorge was the site of a tin mine in the early 1900’s

The walk into the gorge starts about 300m from the camping ground. A footpath soon ends and the track passes a number of pools. The gorge walls get higher with trees growing out of crevices and a splendid mix of colours in the rock layers.
