Echidna Chasm is one of the highlights of the park. The walk begins at the Echidna Chasm car park, 19 km north of the visitor centre.
It is a moderately difficult with a short challenging climb near the end. The gorge is a spectacular long, narrow chasm. It has striking colour variations, depending on the angle of the sun beaming into the chasm, with Livistonia palms waving from the 200 m high ridges above. This area is understandably popular with photographers. The amazing conglomerate boulders strewn along the path provide a clue to the sedimentary origin of the Bungle Bungle Range.
You can walk to this lookout from the Echidna Chasm Car park to gain fantastic views of the dry, wild and rugged Osmand Range. It is enjoyable at any time of day but spectacular in the early morning or late afternoon light.
