An area of extreme contrasts, Carnarvon Gorge is the only remaining remnant of rainforest in Central Queensland. Nowhere is this landscape of extremes evident than on the trek to Mickeys Creek.
a haven of rainforest and moss and lichen covered rocks, trickling streams and a small waterfall cascading over a small ledge into a cool, welcoming pool created by the running water over thousands of years.
Carnarvon Gorge’s rock art sites are believed to have been in use for over 3500 years with connection to the Bidjara and Karingbal Aboriginal people.
follow Carnarvon Creek into the heart of the gorge under towering cliffs, across stepping stones in the creek and you will discover Aboriginal rock art and cultural sites, fernfilled gorges, breathtaking sandstone structures, rainforest pockets. A wonderful oasis in the outback.
