Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Hidden Valley Road, Kununurra, this walk takes you on a circuit in Mirima National Park, visiting The Derdbe-Gerring Banan Lookout along the way. After traversing throughout the ancient sandstone ranges and reaching the lookout, you can enjoy open views of Kununurra and Ord River Valley, whose vegetated valleys are stunningly beautiful. Additionally, the first part of the trail is a wheelchair friendly loop with interpretive signage. You can prefer to walk early morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the very worst of the heat. Let us begin by acknowledging the Miriuwung people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
