Enjoy a birds' eye view over picturesque tufa-formed Indarri Falls. Take a cooling dip in the creek at the falls and spot turtles, catfish, long toms and barramundi. If taking a dip, avoid scrambling over the falls as this will destroy the fragile tufa formations. Continue around the gorge rim to Indarri lookout (340m from Indarri Falls) and Duwadarri lookout for striking views over Middle Gorge before descending to the creek to complete your circuit.
One of the park's western walks, this track is less strenuous if walked in a clockwise direction as described. It can be accessed from the shady concrete path along the creek from the Middle Gorge day-use area and is best walked in the morning.
Freshwater crocodiles live in Lawn Hill Creek, and are often seen at Indarri Falls and the Upper Gorge. They are considered timid and not life-threatening but may become aggressive and cause injury if disturbed. Do not approach or interfere with these animals and take care if swimming.
Getting there and getting around

- The Indarri Falls track can be accessed from the car park in the Lawn Hill Gorge section of the park.
- From the car park, walk to the Lawn Hill Gorge visitor centre and take the Rainbow Serpent track to the Middle Gorge day-use area, then turn left and follow the concrete path west along the creek bank to the start of the Indarri Falls track.

There are no wheelchair-accessible facilities.
- There is no drinking water along the track, but you can collect water (treat before use) from the taps at the Lawn Hill Gorge visitor centre and Lawn Hill Gorge camping area.
- Don't drink water straight from Lawn Hill Creek as it can make you very thirsty because of the high levels of calcium carbonate. Please do not waste water.
