Carnarvon Gorge, Carnarvon National Park

Rolleston, Central Highlands Area

An oasis of birdlife, unique plant species and freshwater creeks, the Carnarvon Gorge is a sparkling gem amongst the dusty heart of Central Queensland. Is it any wonder it's the region's most popular attraction? Climb over boulders, marvel at the colours of sandstone cliffs, walk through quiet eucalypt and cabbage palm forests. There are several trails of various difficulties to help you explore this special place which is home to over 170 bird species.

Check out the view from Boolimba Bluff, discover swamp wallabies in Mickey Creek Gorge, then let yourself be taken back in time as you soak up the Aboriginal engravings, ochre stencils and freehand paintings adorning the sandstone walls on Art Gallery walk.

There are plenty of places to picnic. During the Queensland school holidays you are allowed to camp in the official visitor area at the gorge but bookings are essential. At other times of the year you can find accommodation and camping facilities five minutes from the gorge.
