Cassinia Walk (1.5 km)  click on thumbnail to see larger   back

Itís a pleasant walk down through the Blackbutt ( Eucalyptus campanulata). The name comes from the frequent fires that scorch their bases. Yellow- Flowered Cassinia (Cassinia leptocephala) forms a dense border to the walk, with big flowerheads in Summer. (Photo Paul McCann)

Teatrees (Leptospermum spp.) are often found in creeks and wetlands throughout eastern Australia. They are usually shrubs 1-3 m in height, with an open white flower common in the Myrtaceae family. (Photo Paul McCann) There was once a lookout platform here, but later investigation showed a weakness in the rock strata that lead to its removal. It would be unwise to venture here without a safety line as in the photo.  (Photo Paul McCann)
The photo (taken from the end of the safety line above) shows the flat ridge to the SE. Note the steepness of the spurs leading off it, and the sparse eucalypt forest contrasting with the deep green of the dry rainforest in the gullies.(Photo Paul McCann)

A steep 4WD road switchbacks down the ridge to the left of the valley of the Macleay. It was built by the property owner to access stock on the narrow river flats that sustain the cattle business. (Most of the gorge bottoms are slowly being bought up by the National Parks)(Photo David Lawrence)

Blue Nobby Mountain is the highest point at the top left. From the summit, a route popular with backpackers leads down into the gorge. The final part the steep spur in the centre middle of the photo (see ĎEnmore Areaí for details and maps). The view up the Macleay extends to the Gara River coming in on the right of photo.
