Starting from the car park at the end of Ormiston Gorge Access Road, Mount Zeil, this circuit walk explores the Ormiston Gorge and western parts of the Ormiston Pound, visiting Ghost Gum Lookout along the way. Embark on a scenic journey where you’ll make your way through diverse environments and vegetation as you become one with nature. Notice the contrast between the colour of the bush and the strikingly red boulders. Expect to see an unreal view of the Ormiston Pound surrounding you, making you feel like you’re in a gigantic crater. The gorge itself looks beautiful from the Ghost Gum section of the walk along with the stubborn Ghost Gums growing on rock faces. There is a permanent waterhole you’ll need to cross that is at least thigh-deep, so bring your jumpers and take advantage of the situation. Check the water level at the visitor centre beforehand and protect yourself well from the sun to be safe. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
