Take an easy stroll through sclerophyll forest and explore Koreelah Creek Gorge on this short walking track. It’s only 10 minutes from Koreelah Creek campground, but there’s so much to see along the way.

You’ll see rugged peaks that rise to the west and dark green foliage of hoop pines clad to the steep cliffs. Keep a lookout as you wander along the creek for platypus swimming in the large pools of water.

Once you arrive at the gorge, stop for a while, take a refreshing swim in the cool waters or find a spot on the rocks to sit and admire the local wildlife. You might just see a brush-tailed rock wallaby on the steep rocky slopes of the gorge below the waterfall. It’s also a great place to listen out for frog calls in summer and excellent for birdwatching all year round.
