Moderate track
Starting from the car park at the end of Hidden Valley Road, Kununurra, this walk takes you to Demboong Banan Lookout and back in Mirima National Park. Go for a stroll and enjoy the views of Kununurra after you climb through eroded sandstone ranges. It is also possible to see families of vibrant coloured fairy-wrens jumping in and out of acacia trees along with rock pigeons. The trail is named after local Indigenous Miriuwung people; Demboong means gap, and Banan means trail. Even though the walk is short, it is steep and uneven, with rock surfaces that require caution through the climb. 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.
