Carnarvon Gorge National Park

A twenty-four hour escape to Carnarvon Gorge National Park. This place is amazing. Less than three hours from Roma, it's a world away. Towering cliffs, moss gardens, incredible natural rock formations, Aboriginal rock paintings, crystal clear rivers set amongst a mix of subtropical rainforest and open plain scrub. Realistically you could easily spend a minimum of three days here. There is many walks ranging in intensity and length, helicopter rides over the range, and good quality accommodation. We didn't have time to see half of it, but it was certainly a taster. Would love to come back one day and see the rest. Anyway, here's a few images to give you an idea...
