There are a couple of walks around Hamersley Gorge. Hamersley Waterfall Walk (Class 3) is a 400m, 30 minute return trip. This walk begins as steps, allowing access for most visitors. This walk boasts ever changing light and astonishing colours and reflections which highlight the complex geological forces in the landscape. Hamersley Gorge Walk (Class 4) is a 1km, 3 hour return walk. One of the more difficult walks in the Gorge, the track leads upstream past still pools and polished boulders to The Grotto – a fern-lined chasm, well hidden in the eastern side of the gorge. Swirls of rock sweep down through the gorge and waterfalls rush into tranquil pools. You can clamber through the pools and up the rocks to an upstream pool known as Spa Pool; a heart-shaped pool where you can relax under a small waterfall. Karijini is a bushwalker’s delight, so whilst in the area try the many other walks including Knox lookout, Knox Gorge, Joffre Lookout, Joffre Falls and Handrail Pool.
