A short walk into Weano Gorge brings you to Handrail Pool, which is great for swimming and provides the best introduction to Karijini National Park and Australia’s most ancient landscapes.
Join a Karijini tour to explore the challenging trail beyond.
Walkers can choose to enter Weano Gorge in two places, with a longer walk through Upper Weano Gorge starting at the carpark, and a shorter walk through Lower Weano Gorge starting from the trail towards Oxer and Junction Pool lookouts. The Weano Gorge trails are Class 4, and require some scrambling and wading through water. The last part of the trail to Handrail Pool is Class 5, and walkers will need to traverse stepping stone and use the handrail to help negotiate the climb into the spectacular Handrail Pool.
