Alum Cliffs is a relatively short and well defined track through an area of historical and cultural significance.

From the car park there is a short ascent to a plateau with a large sculpture (the three points on the sculpture represent the three significant paths aboriginal people would walk; from Western Bluff to tulampanga and Quamby Bluff). Then through a gentle descent the track terminates at a viewing platform overlooking the Mersey River and spectacular Alum Cliffs Gorge.

tulampanga is the Pallittorre (local Aboriginal) name for the area.

Time: 40 minutes return.

Grade: 2: Suitable for most ages. The track has a hardened or compacted surface that may have a gentle uphill section or sections of occasional steps.
