The Gorge has been an attraction for tourists since the 1850s. Until 1908 there were no roads to the Buffalo plateau and tourist reached this point with the aid of a guide. The most famous of these was Alice Manfield, known as Guide Alice (pictured), who became legendary for her knowledge of the plateau and its plants, animals and beauty spots.
