The Gully is a new area that is under development. Unlike most of Elderslie, the boulders are on Crown land, so access shouldn't be as much of an issue. There is a large amount of wildlife in the gully, including snakes and wallabies, so dogs probably aren't a good idea.


To get there, continue on the road past the Roadside boulder for another couple of hundred metres, around the corner. Park at a large pull-out on the left. Go through the gate on the opposite side of the road, and walk through the river at the ford (usually OK except after rain). Head across the paddock to the entrance to the valley. Head up the left side of the gully, slightly up the hill to where it flattens and clears out a little. Follow the lie of the hill up the valley, until you find the first boulder, Crystal Boulder. Total walking time about 10 minutes.

Ethic inherited from Elderslie Bouldering

Most of the bouldering in this area is on relatively soft sandstone. This can, in case of recent rain or general dampness, lead to easy breaking of holds. Hence when climbing in this area on a wet or damp day, be careful not to break any important holds.
