About this place
Temple Gorge has a campground and is the starting point for trails and walks into the gorges and to the top of the range.
Venture into Temple Gorge on the Temple Gorge Trail. Follow along the dry creek bed to sandstone features and a seasonal rock pool. The ‘Temple’ is a prominent rock face along this trail.
Start at either Draper's Gorge parking area or Temple Gorge campground to walk the Escarpment Trail. The trail leads into a narrow gorge that ascends to the top of the range for spectacular views. This trail is steep with loose rocks and traverses near exposed cliff edges
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
