Walk

Starting from the Carnarvon Gorge Visitor Centre, Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the Amphitheatre of the Carnarvon Gorge and back via the Big Bend Walk, optionally visiting the Moss Garden along the way. You’ll be dazzled by the colossal sandstone walls around you as you walk into this acoustic chamber. You’ll be able to listen to the reverbing sounds of nature if there’s no one else in there with you. And by any chance you’re with a person who can sing, sit back and enjoy the natural surround sound system. As a plus, this little haven of a place is significantly cooler than the main gorge. Other than that, notice the diversity of the vegetation as you take in the scenery throughout the walk. Keep in mind that there is a steep tiered ladder and a narrow crevice you need to pass to access the Amphitheatre. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes) and expect to get wet feet. Let us begin by acknowledging the Bidjara & Karingbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
