The location is hard to beat, the rooms/tent style are fatalistic and the food was excellent. Loved it all (except for the mozzies LOL)
The staff were helpful over and beyond the call of duty.
We really enjoyed the lunch menus but thought the dinner menu was a bit sophisticated for the Wilderness setting. I thought it could have been improved with some Australian flavourings and ingredients.
We were not told we would be in a tent. So a bit disappointed with our accomodation. The meals in the restaurant were very nice. We enjoyed our walks.
First, the Wilderness Lodge is up-market camping. "tents" (cabins), are fixed structures with private facilities, comfortable beds and porch/verandah. Cabins are well spaced apart so you are really private. Carnarvon Gorge has unique flora as well as cliffs, canyons, Aboriginal rock art all easily accessible via an easy to moderately difficult hiking track. Suggest you hike to the Gallery for the rare Aboriginal art. Start back stopping in at Ward's Canyon with its waterfall, red algae on the creek rocks as you continue into the narrowing canyon on a well made path. Next stop is the Amphitheatre with its towering cliff walls making a natural enclosure. Be prepared for a steep climb up ladders to reach this wonder. Lastly is Moss Garden, probably the most known and most photographed of all Carnarvon Gorge sights. Permanently seeping water ensures the perfect environment for mosses and liverworts to grow in profusion. Also a waterfall and pool at Moss Garden. Bit of an uphill hike with steps to reach this green oasis. This trek is 14km for the round hike. We stayed two nights at the lodge and really were impressed with the whole experience. It's not cheap and requires effort to see as much as possible but it is well and truly worth the $$'s and the effort.
The room service with beds being made and fresh towels was lovely especially after a hard day of walking.
It was wonderful to stay at this nice and peaceful wilderness lodge. We stayed there for 4 days and we really enjoyed our stay. The gorge is amazing .The staff are very friendly and the room service was good. In overall we would recommend this wilderness lodge to everyone ,but take some food and drink with you as all the dishes were very expensive in the restaurant.
Loved the Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge - if all camping were that luxurious, I would never stay in a hotel again. The "tent" was cosy and roomy, beyond expectation. Our bed was wonderful with smoochy doonas and pillows and I could have stayed in there all day, except the gorge was calling. The surroundings at the Lodge were exceptional and while there were plenty of other folk staying there, we truly felt like we were on our own in the middle of the bush. I also have to note how surprised we both were at the quality of the meals - we sort of expected that as it's a bit of a captive audience, that the food would be expensive but quite possibly mediocre. How very wrong we were - the food was fantastic, as was the warm and friendly service. I highly recommend the Lodge and would definately stay there again.
The "glamping" accommodation was perfect for the location. The walks were sensational and the service and food in the restaurant, was first class. We raised a concern about the level of night lighting around the grounds and it was fixed immediately.
Beautiful unspoilt spot;perfect interaction with the elements;comfortable without being luxurious
Very peaceful and relaxing. Walks were amazing.
We immensely enjoyed our stay the wilderness lodge. The staff were very polite, attentive and the restaurant quite nice and well organised. We loved our eco cabin and the challenge of trekking through the Gorge. A great way to get kids away from TV, video games and the like.
Very good food and facilities
Our only concern was the fact that dinner was served very early at 6.00 p.m.or 6.30 p.m. and little flexibility if one wanted to eat later. The food provided was of only average quality, but priced at city restaurant levels.
Fantastic secluded location, very comfortable & quiet. Good that cars are parked away from cabins.Few minutes drive to Gorge. Delicious meals.
Overpriced but justified by being remote. Dinner menu could be changed more often, same choice each of 3 nights
Couldn't have been better. Cabin was great and the mist comfortable bed if our stay.
The stay was great we enjoyed the walking tracks and the wildlife especially the kangaroos and wallabies. The staff at the dining room were very attentive and so friendly and thoroughly enjoyed the meals.
Rob and I thought Carnarvon Gorge was a truly magical place. We really enjoyed our visit. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, which added to it. It is a must see.
Very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the wide verandah looking out onto gardens and grazing kangaroos provided a good relaxation area. However, we could have done with a smallish chair or two inside. The safari style tents are well designed.
Thoroughly enjoyed Carnarvon Gorge, spectacular scenery, our walk up the gorge especially the Ampitheatre something really special, made even better by a 20min. helicopter flight with a very informative pilot. Would recommend it to anyone.
The proximity to the gorge was excellent and we had great facilities despite feeling in the outback.
To anyone thinking of exploring Carnarvon Gorge, the Wilderness Lodge is a perfect starting point if like a little luxury.
The little hut right in the middle of trees and wildlife was truely spectacular! We love every minute of it!
We (3) thoroughly enjoyed our time @ the Wilderness Lodge and the wildlife we saw made it even more memorable
