Carnarvon Gorge Experience


sunny 15 °C

Carnarvon Gorge is just UNBELIEVABLE.

There are guided tours and walks which I've heard are amazing. We (Matilda and Clarence) were so keen to partake in one of these guided tours ─ our daughter has told us all about them ─ but there was way too much frost on that track, causing it to be slippery and dangerous. The last thing we needed was to take a fall and have to cut the trip short!


Luckily, the Art Gallery walk was open and hazard-free so we jumped at that opportunity (as we are big art-lovers!) Our walk -which was approximately 10.8km (return)- took us about 3 hours and 45 minutes or so (but can usually take between 3 to 4 hours.)


Visitors can swim at the Rock Pool-so that’s exactly what we did. Children are supervised so there was a low chance that they will be disruptive ─BEAUTIFUL. It was such a peaceful and relaxing experience. To protect the Carnarvon Creek's refined aquatic bionetwork, swimming is prohibited in other sections of the creek. Sunscreens, deodorants and insect repellents can violate water quality, which affects the already damaged habitat of turtles, frogs and platypi.


We are so happy that we decided to visit Carnarvon Gorge because it was even better than we thought it would be! It was everything we have said it was, plus much, much more!


Anyhow, Sally Forth,
