today we are supposed to be tackling the best gorge in these parts. it will be a long hike today supposed to be five to six hour return, it is located in a section of land surrounded by six to eight other gorges/hikes and national parks, so it should be good. the first half of the hike is easy just follow an easy parth to a shallow pool, then you continue on and go up the riverbed which ends in a larger pool that is nice and deep, but to continue on you have to scramble up a large boulder that is a storie and half tall. at this point it gets alot harder, it is the hardest hike i have done in australia it is even harder then cradle mountain. it is an hour of scrambling and climbing over rocks of all shapes and size, small pebbles to rocks bigger then i am. when you are three quarters of the ways up a small waterfall. at the end you get to a waterfall and plunge pool that looks like something out of a shampoo commercial.
zebedee springs is an amazing little oasis hot springs, though it is only open from 6 am to noon, the rest of the time it is used privately. it does feel a bit touristy and the large ammount of people that come here ca take away its allure, especially when groups of old people tours show up, and it really reminds you that it is incredablly easy to get to.
