Auburn River National Park , Riverbed and rockpools walk

Queensland

This is a strenuous walk and should only be attempted
by fit walkers. This rough track winds down the side of
the gorge to the river, travelling through dry rainforest,
eucalypt forest and creek vegetation. The swollen
trunks of bottle trees are a forest feature.
Before exploring the river: take time to observe the
immediate area to ensure you will be able to find the
trail on your return. Take care when walking on wet rock
surfaces, as they can be slippery.

Being the middle of summer it was quite hot so we headed down to the river for a swim. It was a bit tricky negotiating the rocks to the water's edge and because the water was very silty with no visibility we were reluctant to go in.
Soon the only other people at the camp ground, a young family, came down and ventured in. We followed them in and explored the swimming hole, going up rock fissures to where the water gushed in.
I think I got nibbled by a fish.
While we relaxed in the shade, the family crossed the river exploring the far bank. The track across is tricky as the rocks are large.

Nice easy walk. Good to explore the rock pools.

A more interesting walk , some fitness and good shoes required , specially if wanted to explore riverbed. Large rocks which can be slippery when wet.
