Access to Dandry Gorge is via a 30klm dirt road which I would not attempt during or after heavy rain. A little rough in patches but passable in dry weather and well worth the effort. Picnic tables and toilets are available adjacent to the car...More

The gorge is reached by a 30km unsealed road off the Newell Highway. From the parking area a 2.6km return walk takes you past five sets of steel or stone sculptures celebrating the indigenous connection to the area. At the parking area is a toilet...More

Really enjoyed the walk along the top of the gorge and viewing the sculptures. It was lovely the way they were spaced out and you didn't know what to expect. They just popped up out of the scrub. Beautifully landscaped and fitting very well into...More
