Reportedly the most accessible gorge in Karijini, Weano Gorge (Handrail Pool) offers a chance for an almost surreal adventure that involves rock scrambling and neck-deep swims. Navigate the rocky steps that lead to the bottom of the gorge until you find yourself between jagged towering cliffs. Keep walking over stepping stones crossing running creeks, as the red rocky walls enclose on you and the gorge narrows. Farther on the way down, the trail changes from Class 3 to Class 5. Keep both hands on the railing if you want to proceed and take a dip in the chilly waters of the Handrail Pool. Our Karijini National Park road trip planning site makes visiting Weano Gorge (Handrail Pool) and other Karijini National Park attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Absolutely fantastic. Adventurous walk into the gorge. Be aware that you will get wet. Loved it so much. Definitely recommended. One of my favorite walk in Aussie.
  • Beautiful gorge and a nice hiking trail through it. Be prepared to get very wet for the last bit. Water was over 1.5m deep in July when I visited.
