Visited this site after reading about the 24 hour camping. Sadly there is now a big sign that limits this to campervans only :(

It's more of a Gully than a Gorge, otherwise it's a very pleasant short walk through the dry vine scrub.

This is a good picnic spot with free overnight camping allowed and a lovely walk to enjoy which takes you through the rainforest and down to the lookout to view the river. Facilities are good with toilets, BBQs and picnic shelters.

Nice little nature walk, took about 15 mins or less to get to the lookout at the end. We even stopped to see a snake sliding along the path and off into the bush, that was pretty cool if you like snakes!
