Redbank Gorge

A grade 3 - moderate 2 km, 1.5 hour return walk from the carpark alongside the creekbed will lead visitors to Redbank Gorge. The walk is unmarked but starts on a well defined track before dropping into the sandy creek bed. On a warm day walking in the sand is tiring and visitors should take and drink plenty of water. The track is rocky at times and care should betaken when walking.

Section 12 of the Larapinta Trail starts and finishes at the Redbank Gorge Carpark. Walkers can choose to enjoy the views at the Mt Sonder Lookout and return (5 km, 2.5 hours, includes steep sections of stone steps). Walkers also have the option to start or finish Section 11 of the Trail from this point. Both of these Sections are graded 3/4 - moderate to difficult and should only be attempted by fit people with previous bushwalking experience.

Lamb's Head and Kahlpahlim Rock

This a a fantastic and varied hike to the summit of Lamb's Head. Walk would range between 4-6hrs depending on fitness levels and stoppages. I recommend taking a few litres of water and some snacks. It is best during the dry winter season. The views at the top are absolutely amazing and there are several viewing points if you follow the 'sometimes hard' to see small pink ribbons. One view faces north/north-east over Cairns and the other is west/north-west. It truely is the one of the best hikes in the region. Afterwards you can find many beautiful rock pools at Davies Creek to swim in.
