Macallister Creek

Another walk up a dried out creek bed- depending on season and rainfall. We finished when we reached a very narrow gorge that ended in a vertical waterfall drop with no way up. We did try to follow a faint footpad up and around to continue, but time was against us. This is part of a 2-3 day walk, but we only did this first bit. It was extremely interesting, with lots of rock pools and gorges.
