    As you get deeper into Stokes Range it becomes a labrynth of gorges etched deeply into a sandstone plateau. Particularly in the wet season the heads of these gorges have often hidden waterfalls. With the steep walls of the gorges providing shade and a buffer to drying winds, inside the environment is in stark contrast to the plateau above. Secretive waterfalls plummet into these cool, fern festooned recesses. Pools at the base of the waterfalls provide welcome relief.

    A large rock shelter near a waterfall is home to numerous snakes at certain times of the year. While I was there no snakes were 'at home'. At least the plunge pool at the base of the waterfall made the trip in worthwhile.

    It's set in wilderness country so there's no 'directions' or sign posts for getting there. You need to be able to navigate cross country using compass and map.
