Upper Portals (Mt Barney National Park)

Medium
8km

A lovely part of Mt Barney National Park with a stunning gorge. I can see why they say Waterfall Creek Road is 4wd only, but wasn’t to hard. I am a novice 4wdver and made it quite comfortably in my Jimny. If you don’t have a 4wd, get ready for a long, rough walk to the top.
The walk to the Upper Portals is down hill at the start (making for a heart pumper hill at the end of the hike) and then basically flat all the way. Once you get to Yamahra camp site you’re almost there. You could either rock hop the creek down to the left or there is a track on the far side, just a bit grown over.
Once you get to the the end you’ll see the top of the portals. You can also access the middle from this end. To get to the bottom you need to go up and over the hill on the far side. Cross the creek and head right and then on your left just before the gorge you’ll see a faint trail heading straight up the hill. Follow this up and down and that will take you to the bottom part of the portals. My only advice is be careful on the rocks, super slippery! I may have fell in. 😂
Overall an easy walk with stunning scenery. Only saw a few other hikers due to how remote it is. Staying at the campsite would be amazing.

Started from Booloumba creek camp site 1 and returned via the road through campsite 3. Easy walk with a couple short steep parts. Slippery in spots so make sure of your steps. Creek running but not high although you do need high clearance 4wd to get into NP. I got through the first crossing in my Jimny but the second crossing was quite deep so parked and walked in which added about 30mins to the walk.

Easy to find with the helpful comments left here from other walkers. 45mins down and an hour back up due to the incline, but wasn’t to hard with a moderate pace. Pools were beautiful and running, although quite cold once you were in! Great hidden gem without the crowds, hopefully it stays hidden for a while longer.

Easy scenic walk at the end of a long gravel road. Bit rough in my car but got there ok. Falls are beautiful.

Moderate walk with spectacular views at the top. Very popular, lots of people walking when I was there. Plenty of parking.
