This is the ultimate winter walking escape in the heart of the Queensland outback. Fabulous warm days and cool evenings coupled with Australia’s best kept secret Carnarvon Gorge. This is Queensland’s answer to the Kimberley, except that the tracks are much kinder underfoot 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.
We’ve made it very easy by starting the walk in Roma, a quick flight from Brisbane averting the 12 hr drive, but this is made possible only with Auswalk. There is no other way to get to remote Carnarvon but to drive, acting as a gatekeeper, creating an atmosphere of splendid isolation in a unique natural wonderland.
Spring fed Carnarvon Creek carves a twisted route through the spectacular sandstone gorge. The clarity of the permanent water is particularly impressive. No wonder it took 10000 years to filter through the sandstone to get to the creek; a creek that nurtures strands of cabbage palms, pockets of remnant rainforest and rare king ferns with five metre fronds, a landscape with a prehistoric feel.
This is an opportunity to explore on foot Australia’s preeminent Gorge network in wild west Queensland, stress and hassle free, as we take care of every last detail. We allow time for the important things, to take a swim in the crystal clear Carnarvon Creek and to relax and enjoy the magnificent lodge precinct. We also will get to experience the beauty of one of Australia’s best kept secrets from the air with a scenic helicopter flight. The trip includes a la carte meals each night and cooked breakfasts each day and rooms in luxury glamping tents with ensuites. With two outstanding guides looking after you, it’s easy to pace yourself with a choice of easier or harder pack free walking options along the way.
