Walk
4 days to 6 days

Starting from the Carnarvon Gorge Visitor Centre, Carnarvon Park, this great circuit walk takes you into the Carnarvon Gorge and gives you a grand tour of the interesting landmarks in and around the gorge. The 87 km long track features summit lookouts, amphitheatres, rock formations and much more. Typically spread out to 6 days, this journey will surely require some skill and determination. Yet the views you’ll get from Battleship Spur combined with the Mahogany trees along the trail will make the walk worthwhile on their own. It’s possible to come across emus, echidnas, sugar gliders and heaps of bird species; so keep an eye out. All of the designated campsites have water, yet you’ll need to carry enough to get you through the day. Keep in mind that you’ll need a permit to access Carnarvon Park and the said campsites. This walk is closed from the 1st of November to the last day of February. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes). Let us begin by acknowledging the Bidjara & Karingbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
