“A Truly Unique Outback Experience”

An inspiration regardless of either the weather or the time of the day, the Chasm is at its most dramatic an hour either side of noon on a sunny day. Then the sheer walls glow from reflected sunlight to create a breath taking display of stark form and rich colour.

An entirely different experience is provided along the walking track that links the carpark to the Chasm. This follows a creek where spring-fed pools are attract a great variety of wildlife and particularly birdlife. Thanks to water, the gully floor is lush that range from delicate ferns to tall gum trees; many species such as the cycad palm, have survived here in the shadow of the arid hills from a long-gone wetter age.

Although the track is rough in parts, most active visitors will find the 20 minute one-way walk to be quite easy. However, the conditions require that sensible walking shoes be worn.

They operate the café as a profitable concern with no funding and as a training facility for their children.Whether you require a full meal or an ice-cream our friendly local staff will give you great service and a welcome to their country.Pleasant picnic areas, barbecues and other facilities are also provided. Group Bookings for BBQ’s and luncheons are welcome all year round.
