Adcock Gorge is one of the lesser known Kimberley Gorges along the Gibb River Road, and it's gorgeous.
A clear, deep green pool, a waterfall to shower under...
...rock ledges to jump from...
...a lush, grassy edge to sit down, a picturesque lily pond downstream...
...and most tourists fly straight past it in their hurry to tick off the big attractions.
I suggest you get away from the few big and well known sites and take some time to explore and enjoy. There are so many hidden and little known gorges and waterfalls along that road, so many magical places.
And if you are flexible with your time at all, go early in the season.
As soon as the roads are open, as soon as you dare (depending on how much water your vehicle can handle), that's the best time to see the Kimberleys.
The amount of water you see coming down the waterfall in the video below, you won't see that later in the year.
Adcock Gorge is about 5 km off the Gibb River Road and along a very rocky 4WD track.
The walk from the car park is very short and you'll have to climb over a few boulders as you make your way along and across a pretty and shady lily pond.
At the end you find a beautiful deep green pool with a small waterfall, ferns and grassy edges. There shouldn't be too many other people here. Adcock Gorge is particularly beautiful in the afternoon, when the sun lights up the red rocks surrounding it.
The above video by the way is very old. Sadly, camping is not allowed any more at Adcock Gorge but it still makes a great day stop.
