A leisurely drive through the park will take you about an hour ending at Yardie Creek Gorge

A Boat Tour operates through the Gorge where Ospreys and other Birdlife can be observed in the sheer walls and outcrops

Caves in the gorge walls are home to the Black Footed Rock Wallabies and these are often spotted relaxing in the sun with their joeys outside the cave openings.

Boat tours operate twice daily check the site for times and availability either http://www.visitningaloo.com.au or http://www.yardiecreekboattours.com.au

You are sure to have a very unique and enjoyable experience with the Flora and Fauna of the park but please be aware that Wildlife abounds in the park so drive with caution and avoid driving at dusk, dawn and night.
