THE ‘LOOP’ SELF DRIVE TOUR
Most guests choose to drive the ‘loop’ drive during their stay. They usually do the drive on Saturday if staying over a weekend. It can fit in well with the platypus excursion as it normally takes 4-6 hours or so, depending on how long you spend at the waterfalls and lunch etc. The platypus excursion usually leaves Adjinbilly at about 4.30pm (earlier in winter).
The ‘loop’ self drive tour leaves from Adjinbilly and traverse the 10 crossings to Killarney and then ascend to Acacia Plateau to view the magnificent waterfalls including Queen Mary Falls. Don’t miss Brown’s falls if you don’t mind getting a bit wet. They are spectacular. Guests often have lunch at the kiosk at Queen Mary Falls or further on at Spring Mountain Café. (You need to book ahead for Spring Mountain Café. Just ask us and we will book it for you if you haven’t already booked it.) Enjoy feeding the birds at Queen Mary Falls and the spectacular views from Carrs Lookout and Spring Mountain Cafe.
There is information about the history of the Gorge Road and the crossings in your cabin booklet which can make the trip through the gorge more colourful and interesting.
