Starting from Sunrise View Car Park in Kennedy Ranges National Park, this wall takes you to Temple Campground, visiting Honeycomb Gorge along the way. It offers visitors opportunities to enjoy marvellous geological formations through the walk. There are even boulders that have fallen from the escarpment over time along the way. Additionally, sandalwood trees are there for observation, and they create beautiful scenery. The walk does not follow a shady area, and it can get extremely hot during summer. Bring excessive water and prefer late evenings or early mornings to traverse. The track is mostly flat with occasional rock hoppings. 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.
