Explore the spectacular rangeland country of Mutawintji National Park along the Mutawintji Gorge walk. Your journey through one of the park’s most scenic gorges ends at a peaceful pool surrounded by soaring red cliffs.

It’s a moderately challenging walk, and at three hours return makes for a good day hike. You can spend as long as you like at the pool, admiring the beauty of this special country and taking in the scenic view. You could even take some lunch and a thermos to enjoy an outback picnic.
