Had a great trip here, four nights perfect. Followed the four day itinerary of walks, just right for teenagers, not to much every day!

We spent three days exploring the gorge and enjoyed every minute. You could easily spend a week here. There are walks to suit every ability. We all enjoyed scrambling over rocks and exploring rock pools. I will definitely be back.

Sorry, we stayed in an onsite safari style van. You will have to go to their website as all my material on Carnarvon is at home and I am across the other side of the world. Sorry I can't help.

you don't need a 4WD you can only get to the entrance and then you are on foot. you cannot drive into the gorge.
