We'll start our exploration at Chaelundi campground, before walking out to the stunning Lucifers Thumb lookout. As we follow the scenic Escarpment walk to Chaelundi Falls, you'll take in amazing views of the falls tumbling down into the valley.

As we continue a little further along the track, we'll arrive to Lucifers Thumb, a finger of rock that spreads out into the gorge. After enjoying breathtaking 180-degree views out over the park and Guy Fawkes River, we'll turn return to the campground.

Please remember to bring drinking water, a hat, suitable clothing and sunscreen.
