The Flying Carpet is one of the 'must do' iconic destinations in the Gardens of Stone area. It's up towards the end of the Glowworm Tunnel Road, and it's an amazing rock platform seemingly stuck out in thin air, half way down a spectacular cliff face, overlooking Carne Creek. We'll be entirely off-track, and there's scrub-bashing and rock-scrambling. You'll need a head for heights. The ascent onto the outcrop itself will be with the assistance of climbing tape, but gee, it's well worth it! (Photos from 2014 trip here: https://anbwalkers.org.au/node/1308)
