Walking at Ellery Creek
2. Ellery Waterhole Walk
The easy 5 minute Ellery Creek walk from the car park along a wheelchair accessible path will provide visitors with a picture perfect view of Ellery Creek Big Hole. Riverine vegetation lines the walking track and changes from season to season and year from year. The quick, easy path makes Ellery a great swimming and picnicing spot for locals and visitors alike.
The surrounding vegetation has changed over the years with mighty floods ripping out trees but also laying down new soils to promote future growth. The catchment area of the Ellery Creek is huge and extends in every direct north of the gap in the ranges. The Ellery Creek can easily flow without any rain ever falling on the immediate waterhole area.
