This 500 metre trail into Honeycomb Gorge is a short hike along a stony creek bed. There are rocky sections to clamber over and through, so care should be taken. At the trail end the view opens up to an amphitheatre of impressive size.
Sometimes it is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer immensity of the Kennedy Ranges and miss the finer detail. This trail ends at a curved water-smoothed rockface that becomes a raging waterfall after heavy rain. What is most fascinating is the cavities that honeycomb big sections of the rock face formed by erosion. How did all those rocks get into the cavities way above head level? There are six walk trials in the park - Temple Gorge, Honeycomb Gorge, Drapers Gorge, the Escarpment Trail (leading to the top of the range), the Escarpment Base Trail, and Sunrise View.
About the region
Scenic landscapes, wilderness, wildflowers, camping, walk trails, night skies, geology – gemstones and marine fossils (to observe only), bird watching and outback photography are some of the attractions at Kennedy Range National Park. Kennedy Range is known as 'Mundatharrda’ to the local Inggarda Aboriginal language group. Kennedy Range is a vast elevated north-south oriented sandstone plateau between 12 and 25km wide and about 75km long. The rocks that comprise the range were originally deposited beneath the sea. Over time they were compressed to form sandstone, then faulted, uplifted and tilted towards the west. Subsequent erosion has isolated the plateau 80m above the surrounding plain. The vegetation of the plain is acacia shrubland (mostly mulga), which shades an abundance of seasonal understory of flowering annuals (including everlastings).
