Starting from the car park at the end of Redbank Gorge Road, Mount Zeil, this walk takes you to the Redbank Gorge and back via the same-titled track, visiting the permanent waterhole along Davenport Creek midway. Named ‘Yarretyeke’ by the Arrernte people, this lovely gorge is located at the base of Mount Sonder (Rwetyepme) and serves as a refuge for the endangered fauna and flora. You can expect to see rock-wallabies, frogs and multiple bird species such as the Grey Honeyeater. The water is surprisingly cold even in summer, considering how hot the weather can get outside the gorge. Enjoy the refreshing waters of Davenport Creek and have a little picnic after the swim if you’d like. Just keep an eye out for snakes. 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.
