The shorter wall up to the right when you enter the gorge proper. Most climbs start with a slab section.

Access issues inherited from Waa Gorge

From Narrabri drive north along Newell Highway towards Moree for 3km then turn right onto Killarney Gap Road (Bingara Road). After about 21km, turn left onto Melburra Road (SR3 to Terry Hie Hie). After approximately 30km, you’ll reach a T-junction. Turn right on Allambie Road to Waa Gorge. Travel 6.5km to the park entrance. Waa Gorge carpark and picnic area is a further 1.5km.

Allambie road is dry weather access only. Access is through private property so take care to leave gates as you find them.


When walking into the gorge along the main track keep walking until you can see the main wall, and the trail turns to solid rock. If looking at the main wall, head right about 150m until you see a shorter orange and white wall.

Descent notes

Most routes have lower-offs, however the climbs are on hangers and rope cannot be threaded to bail off.
