The gorge is very speculative for its size and there is plenty of interesting local history and geology if that is your interest. There is plenty of wild life including a small freshwater croc or two if you are lucky

This cruise was fabulous. There are lots of gorges in Australia but this was terrific. The geology was beautiful. I was carrying a back injury but was able to do this cruise and walk reasonably well. I wasn't going to miss it anyway.

Another WOW in outback Queensland. The cruise was breathtaking. Great guides and easy access to the boats for the cruise. Funnily enough everyone was communicating in whispers on the cruise as though nobody wanted to disturb the atmosphere of the experience.

It was tour that I have been wanting to do for many years,to see the lava tubes and fossils that abound in the area, as well as a good presentation by the guides.
