Truly Connect With Nature

Carnarvon Gorge walks

You might feel a little insignificant in the Carnarvon Gorge section of Carnarvon National Park. A wonderland of natural history is yours to explore. Over millions of years water has eroded a deep and dramatic gorge system within the layers of soft, white sandstone – creating majestic cliffs that change colour with the movement of the sun. Carnarvon Creek flows all year, giving life to a luxuriant growth of ferns, palms, shrubs and trees.

With a variety of great walks to choose form, the park’s highlight is a 19.4km return hike. Take your time, inhale deeply and admire every trickling stream, every vibrant pop of fern and every waddling echidna. 

This biosphere in the Capricorn region, is the perfect place to slow down and truly connect to the earth. On towering sandstone overhangs are a fragile reminder of Aboriginal people’s long and continuing connection with the gorge. These ochre stencils, rock engravings and freehand paintings are some of the finest Aboriginal rock imagery in Australia.

Carnarvon Gorge combines environment with culture and offers an abundance of walks and guided talks for visitors of all ages. No matter what your interests, level of fitness or special needs here at Air Adventure we can design a tailor-made Carnarvon Gorge tour just for you.

Fly Private, Save Time, Stay Safe

Carnarvon Gorge tours

Carnarvon Gorge is an oasis in the semi-arid heart of Central Queensland. Flying private with Air Adventure means you get to do, see and discover more on the ground. Simply put, there is no better way to explore Carnarvon Gorge than by private aircraft.

On Air Adventure holidays and tours we like to get you experiencing things you wouldn’t ordinarily get to do. We believe Australia is not just about sitting back and enjoying amazing scenery from a window but getting out there, exploring it for yourself and experiencing this ancient land we call home. 

You can visit Carnarvon Gorge as part of our Cape York & The Gulf tour.
