30 degrees plus. Left 7am with x2 4yo girls and a 1 yo strapped to my chest. I'm fit. Did the walk to the art gallery, stopped in at Moss Garden on the way back. Girls were starting the 'are we there yet' in the last km - but did victory dances at the Ranger hut. They truly loved it.... More

Go for your walks before 7.00AM and enjoy this paradise on Earth. The Cathedral, the Art Gallery, the Amphitheatre, Moos Garden and the Boolimba Bluff were our favourites. You need a minimum of two full days @ the Gorge.

This is one of the many beautiful places to visit in Australia, the various walks, hidden valleys, tranquil areas and knock out places all combine to make it a must see.

We had 1.1/2 days to explore the gorge. Our first afternoon was spent tramping to Boolimba Bluff. This involved a walk of 3.2 km each way, about 960 steps and 4 ladders, quite strenuous, but well worth the effort. Reached the Bluff and the view was noted as the Roof of Queensland to the east, and to to the west... More

This is my 2nd time back here and this time I wanted to do the full walk to Cathedral Cave, it's an amazing walk! From the Carpark to Cathedral Cave with 2 side tracks going to the Ampitheatre and Wards Canyon makes it over a 20 kilometre walk. The trail from the turnoff to the Art Gallery to Cathedral Cave...

It is 1km from visitors centre to turnoff and then 4.4 kms to top & back ,plus another 1km back to visitors centre. There are 960 steep steps up to top! Need to be reasonably fit to do this! You will manage if... More

We spent 4 days trekking around the gorge and it was so beautiful. It had a little bit of everything with aboriginal artwork, scenic canyons, magnificent gorges, creek crossings, for a and flora. What a great experience out in the wilderness. Very well organized track party's by National Parks. Well worth a visit.

An excellent national park for walking of all levels. We spent five days walking all the tracks within the gorge, revisiting our favourite ones a second time. The Aboriginal art galleries were breathtaking locations under large overhangs & recommend those with less time than us to try to include these in their choice of which walks to do.
