There’s only one walking track in the Carnarvon Gorge. It follows the Carnarvon Creek 9.6 km upstream to the Big Bend. Off the Main Track, there are diversions to the Moss Garden, the Amphitheatre, the Art Gallery, the Cathedral Cave and Boowinda Gorge. So it’s about 22 km round trip, 6 hours 30 mins for us.
Thursday 13 August 2020: Carnarvon Gorge
Boolimba Bluff is 6.8 km return with 300 (some reports say 900) steps and a few ladders to climb so it’s best done as a separate walk. It took us 2 hours.
The Rock Pool is a short, 600m return walk from the road to the Visitors Center, before Carnarvon Gorge.
Another short walk (3.5 km return) from the main road takes you to Mickey’s Creek and Warrumbah Gorge. The micro climate inside to cool and damp encouraging ferns, mosses and orchids.
