We start the day early with an opportunity of walking right to the end of the Gorge to Big Bend on the Carnarvon Great walk – a distance of 20 km return. There are many side-walks to do on the way back, such as Boowinda Gorge, Ward’s Canyon, Amphitheatre & Moss Garden.
There are indigenous art sites and rock engravings at places like the Art Gallery and Cathedral Cave where you’ll see literally thousands of such images, all there to teach aboriginal customs, laws, history and where to find food. You’ll walk the length of the gorge, crisscrossing the river on stepping-stones many times.
If this sounds like a lot, there are numerous fascinating gorges to visit with our second guide who will be offering a less demanding walk for some of the group.
