The 12km scenic drive along the floor of this spectacular gorge takes you deep inside Shothole Canyon. From the carpark take a short walk (Class 4) up the steps to a lookout with views of the rugged limestone walls leading back to Exmouth Gulf.
The name of this canyon is derived from the shot holes left in the terrain following the explosive charges set for seismic studies during oil exploration work in the early 1950s.
