The Pyramid Track is located within the Porcupine Gorge National Park, which extends for more than 25 kilometres along Porcupine Creek and includes surrounding open woodland and grassland. The creek has carved an impressive canyon that reveals strata of sedimentary rocks spanning hundreds of millions of years.
In the wider section of the gorge the eroding action of the creek has also created the Pyramid, an isolated monolith of multicoloured sandstone rising from the floor of the gorge, shaped as its name suggests.... more
The 2.4 kilometre return Pyramid track starts from the camping area. The gradually descending walking track leads to the bottom of the gorge, allowing exploration of the gorge floor. The return journey to the camping area, back along the same track, requires a moderate level of fitness as the track is relatively steep. The gorge, with its water source, attracts many animals. Some are permanent residents but others only appear in the dry season. Birds abound so remember to bring your binoculars. Allow 1.5 hours walking time to complete this track of a moderate grade.
Keep to the walking tracks at all times and heed safety signs. You may encounter cattle. Do not startle or approach these animals. Never block their path.... less
