Macallister Creek

Sundown National Park

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.

Route/Trail notes

Cross the dry river bed of the Severn River and find the entrance to the creek bed and follow it. That simple. Keep going for as long as you like or are capable of. Near the end there are some challenging bits involving some scrambling that is quite high. Slipping could involve quite a fall.


Do you need any permits? What's the cost?
