If you're ready for a walk that combines excellent views with a challenging workout, put on your hiking boots and head for the Salisbury Waters walking track. An excellent introduction to gorge bushwalking, this long trek is brilliant for wildlife and birdwatching with the option of overnight camping in the bush.
Veering off the McDirtys walking track, there's optional detours to Mihi Falls and Sarum lookout, making perfect backdrops for a picnic lunch. Look for the scrub wrens and white throated tree creepers amongst the dry gums and heath.
The last leg of this journey involves a steep descent, where you'll get the chance to see the unique dry rainforest up close. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the crystal clear pool while you take in the breathtaking views of the gorges from the ground up.
