Welcome to Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge, a unique North Queensland Outback accommodation situated in the spectacular Carnarvon National Park. Carnarvon Gorge has over 25km of graded walking tracks criss-crossing fresh water streams, meandering through lush tropical side gorges, passing by tranquil waterfalls, climbing the sandstone cliffs and delving into the deep rock crevices that conceal many of Australia's significant Aboriginal art sites.

And it's yours to enjoy, when you journey into Queensland's southern central highlands. The focus of the Wilderness Lodge is to give each visitor an unforgettable environmental experience. The national park surrounding the Lodge boasts unique wildlife, spectacular scenery and incredible bush walks including ancient Aboriginal art and cave paintings.

Spend the day out exploring the national park walks and nature, or laze by the pool. In the evening relax and be spoilt at the Squatters Dining Room, Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge's own restaurant. This is certainly a unique part of the world and a must-see in your Queensland travels.

Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge closes 30 November - 14 February each year during wet season.

Canarvon Gorge

Stayed at the wilderness lodge, just a step away from the park entrance to Canarvon Gorge? The glamping was amazing with large rooms with ensure attached. Each tent want encroaching upon the next one.
Most amazing food experience in the national park. It was amazing and for a small price they would pack lunch for your hiking in the Gorge.
Loved it all!
