Hellyer Gorge

Hellyer Gorge

Make your way to Hellyer Gorge for a spectacular scenic route to the West Coast or Cradle Mountain. The windy route and steep cliffs make for a jaw-dropping wilderness drive. The welcoming canopying of rainforest is what Hellyer Gorge is known for best. Pack a lunch and take in the scenery at the picnic area at Hellyer Gorge Bridge. It has toilet and barbeque facilities and is also the base point for two short walks: the River Walk and the Old Myrtle Forest Walk. From Wynyard, travel via Mount Hicks Road to Yolla where the road joins the Murchison Highway. Follow this through Hellyer Gorge and on to Cradle Mountain or the West Coast.
