Starting from the William Mitchell car park on Bungonia Lookdown Road, Bungonia National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit through Bungonia Gorge via the Red Track. This challenging loop takes walkers through Bungonia Gorge, passing through a variety of stunning natural environments, including mountains, valleys, forests, limestone caves, gorges and canyons. The walk begins with a gentle gradient, following the Red Track through open eucalypt forest, then descends steeply to the gorge floor, where Bretons Creek meets Bungonia Creek. From there, the walk heads along the creek bed, following Bungonia Creek through a slot canyon with a risk of rockfall. This section is off-track and involves scrambling across boulder fields and wading through the creek, which may rise suddenly. The walk continues along the gorge floor, passing through an area affected by rockfall from nearby quarry blasting, which is always preceded by warning sirens. After passing a few waterholes that provide good swimming opportunities, the walk rejoins the Red Track and climbs up the steep ridge back to the top. The walk features extremely steep descents and ascents, with rocky terrain and slippery sections, and is best suited for experienced bushwalkers with navigational skills. It's also fairly easy to take the wrong track, many of which lead to unfenced cliff edges. This walk consists of wide and narrow walking trails and off-track sections, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, rocky surfaces, creek crossings and steep hills, suitable for high fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
