About this place
Exploring Yardie Creek is a must do for any visit into Cape Range National Park. Take a walk on the Yardie Nature Walk or get more adventurous and continue on the Class 4 Yardie Gorge Trail. Explore the gorge by water and join a boat tour. Keep on the lookout for the threatened black-flanked rock wallaby, ospreys and other birds that inhabit the gorge.
Enjoy lunch at the picnic tables under the shade of tamarisk trees.
