Don't urinate or crap in the gorges, they are creeks!

Be discreet and respect the environment when you are here.

There is a general agreement not to climb in Palm Gorge or Waterfall Gorge. These are very unique micro-environments, leave them for future generations. Don't ruin access for others by climbing in these 2 amazing places....

The rock quality of Greville, generally speaking, isn't great and the walls are covered in vegetation.

NO CLIMBING IN PALM GORGE! This is a very unique micro-climate area with very limited, very unique flora.

From the round-about at Boonah, head west on the Boonah-Fassifern Road towards the Cunningham Hwy. Turn left on the Cunningham Hwy & head SW towards Cunningham's Gap, passing thru the township of Aratula. Drive about 5kms South from Aratula & turn left at the Spicer's Gap Sign (google maps say Lake Moogerah Rd). Follow this road for 8+ kms as it wraps around a glorious view of Mt. Greville on your right (road turns to dirt at some point, but not a 4WD road.) Do not turn down the signed Spicer's Gap Road, and keep going past the reservoir/lake on your left. Then turn right into Mt. Greville Rd and find small the NP parking lot ahead. Approach the Wizard and Grey sectors through Waterfall gorge.

One could probably approach this from the east as well.

No toilets or running water at car park.

Keep a low profile. If you need to go, do not toilet in a gorge as these are water courses. Bury your faecal matter, or better yet, carry it out with you. Do not litter - carry it in = pack it out.

A few years ago there was basically Frog Buttress and Coolum. Since then there has been more development than Barangaroo and South East Queensland should be on any climbers radar no matter what your style. Except ice climbing, definitely no ice climbing. But over 1250 routes with hard sport, multipitches and quality trad to make a great trip.
