The Classic Carnarvon Gorge Day Tour

On this 14 km Lower Gorge Explorer Tour we’ll visit four of Carnarvon Gorge’s most diverse and well known sites.

At our first major stop, the Art Gallery, we’ll introduce you to some of the world’s most significant stencil rock art, and some of scientific and cultural meanings behind the 2000+ motifs developed by the Karingbal and Bidjara peoples.

Next up, we’ll visit Ward’s Canyon; a spectacular side gorge that generates its own unique micro-climate and supports the Gorge’s one and only colony of King Ferns.

After lunch we’ll venture into the awe inspiring Amphitheatre and piece together the geological history of this landscape.

And finally,  we’ll explore how local hydrology drives the never ending springs of the beautiful Moss Garden.

"Yes you can visit Carnarvon Gorge by yourself BUT you will miss out on the most amazing insights and stories from Simon and Michelle"

Carnarvon Gorge at a leisurely pace

The last thing we want during your Carnarvon Gorge day tour is for you to feel rushed. 

You have, after all, made a conscious effort to get here, and this may be your one and only visit!

Rest assured we won’t be cracking the whip. That’s simply not our style. 

Instead,  we’ll take it slow and allow time for conversation, chance encounters with flora and fauna, and a hot cuppa, of course!
