Who knew that only half an hour from Marble Bar, the hottest place in Australia – there was a waterhole to cool down in?
Doolena Gorge is shaded by trees and the cliffs most of the day, so perfect for a swim. Follow walking tracks to the next creek or climb up to the waterfall.
If you are camping here, make sure you arrive in time – dusk is a must, this is when the sun lights up the cliff face.
Facilities are non-existent, but pets are welcome. Access this camp only during dry weather.
This camp spot is 109 km south east of the Great Northern Hwy or 34 km north of the Marble Bar turn off.
Turn south on a dirt track on the Port Hedland side of the river, for 1.5 km. Watch for overhanging trees.
