Barney gorge junction remote bush camp to Yamahra creek camp

Mt Barney National Park

There are two ways to do this walk. The first one is to hike back up to the top of the ridge and follow it along to reach Yamahra creek camp. The second way which is the way we went was to follow the creek and rock hop your way, there are some pros and cons to this as the views are amazing and the scenery spectacular, there are some sections which are a bit challenging as they require some small rock climbing skills and are made more difficult if your carrying a large pack. Before you get to the upper portals you have to break track back up the ridge to your right as you cant get around the portals. From there you follow the track over the ridge and down the other side and descend to the Yamahra creek campsite. this campsite is close to running water in the creek, as you walk towards the creek take the left turn and water is about 200m away.

I did this walk going up the creekline there are some pros and cons to this as the views are amazing and the scenery spectacular, there are some sections which are a bit challenging as they require some small rock climbing skills and are made more difficult if your carrying a large pack. I had one stumble and wet my boots which is not good in wintertime and getting dark in two hours. We got to the upper portals and realized that we had gone too far so we had to back track and make our way up the ridge on the right as you cant get around the portals. From there you follow the track over the ridge and down the other side and descend to the Yamahra creek campsite
