Climbing of all types (top rope, easy, hard, trad, sport, single and multi-pitch) in a very adventurous and remote-feeling location, despite its relatively easy access from nearby Townsville.

Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bush fires or land slides after heavy rain. but they will open again soon after.


A bit of a walk uphill but definitely worth the effort. A bit hard to get to if it has been raining. The road goes to pudding after rain ie the wet season. Lotsa trad and sport climbing.
