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,

The Gorge is Amazing , you can walk as little or as much as you like. It is totally not commercial , there are no charges for any of the walks, it explains to you at the beginning how far the walk is and how hard so the choice is yours.
The Road is not sealed so be prepared to drive slow , it is a good road no proplems , but it would be different after a lot of rain .
Take youre food and Water with you as there is nothing for sale in the Park.
Amazing and Beatyfull , I recommend it for a nature experience.

This is one of the best campgrounds I have found in Australia. The facilities are excellent. It is tents only but the sites are large enough to fit your car as well. It is only $5 per person per night. There are flushing toilets and hot showers for only $1. There are free gas BBQs. It is close to the start of the majority of the walking tracks. It is limited to only 33 sites and is only available during the school holidays so you need to book well in advance.
