Private Off The Beaten Track

From AUD $95.00
  • Duration: 9 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Carnarvon Gorge, QLD
  • Product code: POTBT

Exclusive to Australian Nature Guides.



Are you up for a bit of adventure? Strap on your hiking boots and leave the track and crowds behind as you explore some of the Gorge's secret sites that few will ever get to see.


We can only offer this unique opportunity once per week, to just six lucky walkers, making it our most exclusive experience.


Available: April - October (only once per week).

Duration: 8 - 9 hours.

Distance: 15+ kilometres.

Terrain: The first and last section of this walk is on a formed track. The middle section (approximately 5-6 hours) is spent rock-hopping on uneven terrain, crossing the creek many times. Good balance is essential.  

Group size: Min 2 - Max 6 (Due to the sensitive nature of the locations visited on this tour, and restrictions imposed by our Commercial Activity Permit, a group size greater than 6 is not possible).

Includes: Unfortunately, due to COVID Safe restrictions, we are unable to supply our home-baked goods for morning and afternoon tea. Nor are we able to provide tea and coffee. However, we can boil water for those who are happy to bring their own cup, tea, coffee, milk and sugar. 

BYO: Hand sanitiser, lunch, water, snacks, hat, walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing & camera. Please BYO cup, tea, coffee, milk and sugar if you would like a hot drink at lunchtime. Hiking poles will also be handy if you are concerned about your balance on the creek crossings.

Recommended Equipment: Hiking poles are handy for extra stability on uneven terrain (of which there is a lot). Long trousers/gaiters and long sleeves will help reduce scratches, scrapes and cuts from rough plants and rocks.

Bookings: If you're wanting to book multiple tours online (e.g. an Off The Beaten Track Tour AND a Carnarvon Night Safari) be sure to add each product to your cart before completing the form and checking out. Once you have added your first tour to your cart, simply click the "Make another booking" button, which will appear at the top of the next page above the form.
