Carnarvon Gorge long to stay?

Postby Sasha444 » Fri 09 Nov, 2018 7:38 am

We are keen day walkers and are wondering how long we should stay at Canarvon Gorge in a trip planned for July next year We don’t want to do the extended walk, jusf day walks, happy to walk 20k . Our aim would be to do a good walk most days we are there .
There seem to be quite a few side gorges to explore but how long are these walks ? We will stay in the accommodation near the Gorge ..are there other places to walk in not too far away? (We will have a car).
We live in Sydney and figure this will be our only trio to Canarvon Gorge ever so want to get it right
Thanks for your help ..Sasha

Hello Sasha444,
If you're only planning to go in to the park at the main entrance (east) i would imagine three days would be sufficient. Battleship Spur is probably a must.
There is more to see if you're going near Mt.Moffat at the headwaters of the gorge. Everything up there is more spread out. It needs time too. It is 4WD though.
Ever on the search for a one ended stick.
