A walk for the more experienced hikers, track can get a bit tricky to follow at times but hiking clubs have marked the way to Westrays Grave and the Stinson crash site with pink, orange or red ribbons along the way. Getting a little lost, just look for the closest ribbon to get back on track. Beyond Westrays grave the track stops, but the creek can be followed up through to the amazing Larapinta falls, rock hopping about 45 minutes can get a bit tricky at times, and ribbons not so easy to spot. But making your way up to the falls is well worth it! Recommend good shoes with ankle support (about 6 hours return)
