Description Carnarvon Gorge is an oasis in the semi-arid heart of Central Queensland. Here, towering white sandstone cliffs form a spectacular steep-sided gorge with narrow, vibrantly-coloured and lush side-gorges. Boulder-strewn Carnarvon Creek winds through the gorge. Carnarvon Gorge is between Roma and Emerald. From Roma, drive 90 km north to Injune then a further 160 km along the Carnarvon Highway. From Emerald, drive 65 km south to Springsure then 70 km east to Rolleston, and a further 61km to the Carnarvon turnoff. Traditional Owners have a long and on-going relationship with the area that falls within Carnarvon National Park. The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) acknowledges the connection Aboriginal people have with this cultural heritage place, and asks that you treat the country through which you walk with respect and care. Take a walk at Carnarvon Gorge and explore the natural beauty of this rugged wilderness. A minimum of three days is recommended to walk the tracks, explore side gorges and visit Aboriginal art sites. All tracks are fully signposted and lead either from the main road to the park information centre, or from the main track that starts in the Carnarvon Gorge visitor area. Carnarvon National Park's walking tracks have been classified to help you select a walk that matches your bushwalking experience and fitness. Take time to read these class descriptions before walking in the park.
