Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Honeycomb Gorge Trail (Class 3, 600m return) is an easy, but rocky trail which takes walkers to a large amphitheatre containing a seasonal waterfall (unfortunately not running at this time of year)

This is possibly the most popular site within the Kennedy Range national park

You can also walk to the gorge from the camp ground (approx 3km each way) or drive around (which is what we opted to do)

Here we could marvel at the honeycomb cavities that have been eroded into the cliff face by wind and water spray. This has created a mass of hexagonal holes leading to the “Honeycomb” name with the cliffs rising up to 100 metres above the valley
