3 Hour Gorge Tour

Simply Gorge-ous!

There's no better way to grasp the uniqueness of the narrow gorge with its majestic, 30-metre sheer walls than to get up-close-and-personal with it. A three hour boat cruise and tour of the gorge will be an unforgettable highlight of your trip to outback Queensland, Cape York or Savannah Way.

Custom-made, electric powered boats glide through the spectacularly sculpted gorge walls in almost eerie silence ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. There's every chance of seeing one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles.

An informative insight to the geology of the rugged sandstone formations is followed by a guided bushwalk to the grave of pioneer John Corbett and then to the top of the escarpment. It's a relatively easy walk with the reward of a magnificent view of the gorge below.
