Carnarvon Gorge Info



This site is a major tourist destination and therefore, mainly used for touristy reasons. To make this a hazard-free destination, man has had to create bush-walking trails (Navigation signs, paths etc.), build bathrooms, info centres, telephones, viewing podiums, picnic areas, barbeques, caravan/campervan sites, showering facilities, and allow for disabled access, easy/short walks and park guides.



Steadily flowing water has carved this gorge out of ancient sandstone. Dreamtime stories say that the rainbow serpent travelled the land carving the sandstone as he moved. This creates unique and enthralling rock formations. This gorgeous site is located about about 720km by road north-west of Brisbane. Hidden in the rugged ranges of Queensland's central highlands, Carnarvon Gorge features towering sandstone cliffs, vibrantly coloured side gorges, diverse flora and fauna and Aboriginal rock art.


Explore the natural beauty of this rugged wilderness and have the full experience of the gorgeous Carnarvon Gorge in your grasp, with the naturally scenic bush walks. A minimum of three days is recommended to walk the tracks, explore side gorges and visit Aboriginal art sites. All tracks are fully signposted and lead either from the main road to the park info centre or the main Carnarvon Gorge visitor area.


Happy Trails,
