Distance: 7.5 Km return
Difficulty: Moderate with some steep sections

The track begins from a small parking and information area and winds through open bushland filled with xanthorrhoea (grasstree) and eucalypts such as the mallee ash (Eucalyptus codonocarpa) a species under threat in the region.
* If you spot any large xanthorrhoea, chances are they have been growing since before Europeans came to Australia. 

After about an hour and a half of walking we will enter a lush gully that is home to the Lower Portals. Here, we will walk along the creek bank and take in the many large rock pools that are filled with crystalline water - it can be pretty cold in the Autumn/Winter months but is still worth taking a quick dip to cool off and revitalise for the walk back.

Pack your lunch for a picnic by the big pools.

What a great weekend - such a lovely friendly group of ladies. And Jazzy our guide was wonderful as usual. But what did I like the most? It was that I learnt stuff. I had never heard of Dryandra before, I hadn’t heard of half the animals we saw, and I saw a Bilby for the first time ever (I just thought they were an Easter chocolate).

Lastly the food was fantastic, as it always is. Thanks everyone.

Oh and I loved the cute cottages we stayed in. Wooden floor boards are just the best.
