Getting there and parking

Get directions

    From Tingha:

    • Follow New Valley Road (Ruby Street) south for 700m, then turn right onto Kempton Road.
    • Follow Kempton Road for 3km before continuing straight ahead on what becomes Long Gully Road
    • Continue along Long Gully Road for 2km to the carpark adjacent to Long Creek. You may then either drive or walk a further 300m to a pedestrian gate in the fence.
    • If visiting by coach, park on the Tingha side of Long Gully Creek so the coach doesn’t bottom out and get stuck due to a steep incline.
