Mambray Creek to Alligator Gorge Hike
5 h to 2 days
Starting from the Mambray Creek car park at the end of Park Road, Mount Remarkable National Park, this walk takes you to Alligator Gorge via the Mambray Creek, Hidden Gorge and Kingfisher tracks. This challenging hike follows the course of the Alligator and Mambray creeks, which are a series of rocky beds and water holes, exploring the river red gum and native pine forests that line the creeks. The hike begins near the Mambray Creek Campground, winding along Mambray Creek past pools of permanent water, then follows the Hidden Gorge Track along Alligator Creek to the Hidden Gorge Campsite. The hike continues along Alligator Creek, following the Kingfisher Track past the Red Cliffs and the Blue Gum Flat Picnic Area, ending at the Alligator Gorge car park. This route can either be done one-way, leaving a car or arranging a lift at the Alligator Gorge car park, or as a return walk, staying overnight at Longhill Camp. This hike consists of gently undulating walking tails, suitable for moderate fitness levels, with rocky gorge sections, so sturdy footwear is essential. Dogs are not permitted in this park. 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.
