Private Lower Gorge Explorer

From AUD $450.00
  • Duration: 9 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Carnarvon Gorge, QLD
  • Product code: PLGE


Visit the Art Gallery, Ward's Canyon, Amphitheatre, and the Moss Garden with Carnarvon Gorge's most experienced guides.

Hunt for wildlife and unusual plants as you meander along the Gorge floor and then discover the ceremonial meaning behind the Gorge's 4000 year old rock art.

Use Ward's Canyon's extraordinary microclimate to see 30 million years back in time while you wait for the Billy to boil at lunchtime.

Read the Amphitheatre's hidden clues into the formation of the Gorge's rocks and then see the same geology in action as you follow the long journey of the ancient water dripping from the walls of the Moss Garden.

Available: April - September. 

Duration: 8 - 9 hours.

Distance: 14 kilometres. 

Terrain: 16 creek crossings via stepping stones, so good balance is essential. Staircases in and out of the four major sites. The first and last 3 km negotiate a series of three ridge lines, so there are stairs, up and down, in both directions.

Group size: Min 4 - Max 8 (Bookings for groups larger than 8 are possible. Please make direct contact with Simon and Michelle for more information).

Includes: We'll boil the billy at lunch time! Tea and coffee provided.

BYO: Hand sanitiser, lunch, water, snacks, hat, walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing & camera. Hiking poles will also be handy if you are concerned about your balance on the creek crossings.
