Gudda Gumoo lookout track and Gudda Gumoo gorge track are in Blackdown Tableland National Park. Rising abruptly above the surrounding dry plains, Blackdown Tableland protects spectacular sandstone scenery at the north-eastern edge of the Central Queensland sandstone belt. This is the traditional home of the Ghungalu people, who have visited this place for thousands of years and left behind rock art, vivid reminders of their special culture.

On the 3.6 kilometre return walk to the Gudda Gummoo lookout, walk through stringybarks and spiky grasstrees. Gaze across the gorge to distant plains and hills and learn about the significance of Moonda Gudda to the Ghungalu people. Retrace your steps, alternatively continue onto the gorge walk. To complete the gorge walk, continue on another 400 metres to Gudda Gumoo gorge, where damp fern fronds glisten and colourful birds come to cool off. See water spill over sandstone ledges as it flows down and through the gorge.

Moderate fitness is required for the lookout walk, which involves short, steep slopes, some stairs and loose surfaces. A higher level fitness is required to complete the more difficult gorge walk, which 240 stairs leading to the base of the waterfall and loose surfaces. Allow 1.5 hours for the lookout return walk (or 2 hours for the gorge return walk).
