Boowinda Gorge—18.4km return (5–6 hours) Class 4
Rock-hop into this sculpted side-gorge, 100m upstream of Cathedral Cave. The first kilometre of this boulder-strewn gorge is the most spectacular.

After making it to the Big Bend, we've started to explore the Boowinda gorge. This goes for a long way and it keeps amazes you after every bend further through the gorge. Very rocky and you definitely need good ankle supported shoe wear. So worth it and would love to go back to explore this gorge even further and further.

Done as a side trip off a walk to Big Bend and to have a quick look at the first part of the second section of the Great Walk.

Amazing gorge that just keeps twisting one turn after another.

Only a short offshoot from the main track to Big Bend & worth the time.
