I know you said Andy's Chasm is a wet season destination, but do you think that it would be ok at the end of July? Am I too optimistic?

Hi Nancy,

July is the middle of the dry season, so if you wonder if there will still be enough water left in Andy's Chasm... No. There won't be.

In fact, even during the wet season there is not always enough water. If you are interested in Andy's Chasm itself, in swimming and climbing through it, you have to go out in the wet season after a some good rain. You can't go right through the chasm in the dry.

However, it is a beautiful and wild area for bushwalks out the back there. We went twice last dry season. Once, instead of following the creek we went westwards (sort of), around the ranges and then over the top and managed to get to the back of the second chasm.

The other time we followed the creek, ignored the chasm but instead explored all the other valleys and gullies. Beautiful. (And all the time I thought, "We have to come back here in the wet." You could see that there would be waterfalls and pools everywhere after rain...)

But this kind of thing is for experienced bushwalkers only, and those were full day hikes. There aren't any marked trails or anything, just wilderness, and in July there is no water at all. So you'd have to carry enough and you have to let someone know what you plan on doing and when you'll be back.
