My husband and I have been out to Emma Gorge twice before. Coming up to the end of the of the wet season, we decided on a trip out as our two sons had been out a couple of weeks before and the waterfall was still running. It took us about an hour to drive out. We arrived at 10.30am.... More

A beautiful part of our amazing country. Need 4WD to get in, there is a small charge to venture in to the gorge and well worth it. It certainly is not a leisurely stroll it's tough going for most of it. Up and over big boulders in some places, smaller in others. The track is mostly rocks, some dirt (not... More

A gorgeous example of Kimberley landscape. A 45-60 min hike into the gorge. It's not steep, just very rocky so proper footwear essential!! It's also very hot walking so going first thing in the morning is recommended. The spring at the end of the gorge is totally gorgeous so bring your bathers. There is a little restaurant, campground and pool... More

We did this with our 3 year old twins. It was HOT and we had to piggyback them part of the way. It was a long walk. But when we finally got there it was amazing! Very cold but a surprising thermal section which was beautifully warm. The waterfall is spectacular and we didn't want to leave.

Emma gorge and the mineral springs pictured here is a must see for all visitors to the area. You have to be fit to climb to Emma gorge, but the springs are an easy walk.

After a medium walk to the end of Emma Gorge we come to a wonderful clean cool waterhole with ferns growing on the vertical surfaces and water dripping down the walls. It was a refreshing (and very cool!) swim. Personally I preferred the small hot spring situated to the right edge of the waterhole where I spent a long time... More

Emma's Gorge at the end of the hike is nature's reward for your perseverance. The sparkling, cool pond that replenishes from the fall of water through the crags of the Gorge is one of the best places in the Kimberley to truly appreciate the diversity of the Australian outback.

Well worth the walk, although I recommend very early in the day and good walking shoes! A nice swim at the end is essential, we made it with all our various medical issues and so did our 7 yr old, minimal complaints from him too! Swim shoes would be good for the pool at the end to make walking easier... More
