Serpentine Gorge is yet another stunning natural feature of the West Macs region.   The area provides the opportunity for long or short walks through lovely River Red Gums and alongside idyllic semi-permanent water holes.  There are lookouts and well marked trails offering some fantastic views of the types of landscape and geology that are so evocative of Central Australia.


Key features:

  • The shady waterhole and gap
  • The awe inspiring views from the top of the Lookout Walk and bird watching. 
  • In dry times the waterholes in the surrounding area dry up, leaving Serpentine Gorge waterhole the only remaining waterhole in a large area. Birds will move in from the surrounding countryside and can easily be observed by sitting quietly by the edge of the waterhole.
