A hidden outback oasis awaits deep in the heart of the Gulf Savannah region of Far North Queensland. Eighty square kilometres have been carved into deep gorges leaving permanent watercourses overhung by spectacular cliffs – and abundant habitat bird and wildlife. This is Cobbold Gorge.
There's no better way to grasp the uniqueness of the narrow gorge with its majestic, 30-metre sheer walls than to get up-close-and-personal with it. This three-hour tour including a walk to the grave of pioneer John Corbett and a boat cruise and tour of the gorge will be an unforgettable highlight of your trip.
The 3-hour tour begins with an informative insight into the geology of the rugged sandstone formations, followed by a guided bush walk to the top of the escarpment. It's a relatively easy walk with the reward of a magnificent view of the gorge below.
Then glide on custom-made, electric powered boats in almost eerie silence ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. There's every chance of seeing one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles.
Overnight Package: Discovering the spirit of the outback no longer means giving up the creature comforts of home at Cobbold Village. All cabins are fully equipped with bathroom, air-conditioning, television, power points for charging laptops, phones or digital accessories and some are available with basic kitchenettes.
