Compared to the richness of the Carmarthen Canyons - the other creeks
on the northern side of the Grose are all surprisingly fairly poor.
Some of the major creeks such as Birribang - are not canyons - although
they have attractive section of gorge. My personal favorites would be
Dalpura and Koombandah.
One of the best of these canyons is Dalpura. It has some short
attractive sctions of canyon and minimal swims. The exit route - via
the ridge to the west offers a very good wild flower display in late
spring (October and November).
