Liberty Gully

Has its headwaters within the area known as Alcatraz, 450m west of Woolpack Rock. This gully flows for 500m before it reaches the main cliff line, then a further 1.4km till it joins Barton Creek. Named by Yuri Bolotin, Michael Keats and Brian Fox on a Bush Club walk on 27th February 2017. Michael’s track notes record the top section of this gully,In the green heaven below are many species of fern, tree fern and huge Eucalypts. Rain forest tree species are numerous… Over twenty minutes was spent exploring. It was nowhere near enough. Brian and I climbed high and Brian found a way up through a slot to the north. We then returned to the floor of the gully with its exceptional carpet of green and honey coloured walls. This gully that we later proved is readily negotiable all the way through the top cliff line, Yuri, Brian and I have called it Liberty Gully. It is the antithesis of Alcatraz.
