Walk straight into the heart of the Queensland outback and explore on foot the magical secrets of Carnarvon Gorge. This is Queensland’s answer to the Kimberley. Except that the tracks here are much kinder underfoot, the weather is significantly better for walking and there’s a lot more to see in far less time. With towering cliff faces, endless views, prolific wildlife and unsurpassed indigenous art sites, this is as good a walking destination as you find anywhere in the world.
Carnarvon Creek carves a twisted route through the spectacular sandstone gorge. We explore all the best of the Carnarvon Gorge walks including the Carnarvon Great Walk. The clarity of the permanent water is particularly impressive, nurturing stands of cabbage palms and pockets of remnant rainforest. The rare king ferns with five metre fronds among other flora create a prehistoric feel to this landscape.
En route, we walk the rainforest-clad Bunya Mountains where bunya pines and hoop pines tower overhead and the forest is cloaked in ferns, mosses and vines. The walks here are totally different to Carnarvon Gorge with rainforest, big trees and views out to the Pacific coast. Another bonus is to stop at Cania Gorge, a little known and very isolated National Park with eucalypt forest, rugged rock formations, lots of bettongs and other amazing wildlife. Every last detail is taken care of so you can fully experience these stunning landscapes stress free. Indulge yourself at Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness lodge and along the way dine at restaurants enjoying a la carte chef-prepared meals (see inclusions). And with two outstanding guides looking after you, you can pace yourself because we offer a choice of walking options along the way.
