Munch on a snack beneath the towering foothills and escarpment, then take Nawulbinbin Walk to see Aboriginal rock art and masses of striking palms.

More information

Located in the eastern section of Judbarra/Gregory National Park, Joe Creek Picnic Area is a great place to take in the spectacular scenery of the surrounding foothills and escarpment. Nawulbinbin Walk leads from the picnic area up a steep rocky slope to the base of the escarpment where you will see Aboriginal rock art (with interpretive signs) and masses of striking Livistonia palms on the scree slopes. Enjoy the views as you follow the escarpment before a steep descent back down to meet the start of this loop track. The 1.7-km loop is graded as moderate to difficult and should take you about an hour. Joe Creek Picnic Area is situated off the Victoria Highway, 10 km west of Victoria River Roadhouse. Access is via 2 km of unsealed 2WD road, which may be closed during the wet season.
