Bowens Creek is at the bottom of a deep gully. It is famous for its canyoning, but, on this trip, I explored it on a road closed to traffic because of a dilapidated bridge crossing the river. It involves a beautiful descent into the valley and a bumpy climb along a road that has all but returned to nature.

To end the day I visited the Burralow Creek campground and waterfall.

    Bowen’s Creek road looks quite rough! Makes the swim all the more refreshing, I expect.
