We had six nights in an ensuite takka tent. Bed was extremely comfortable, good size fridge and very serviceable ensuite. Short walk to camp kitchen. Roast dinner was great and shop has plenty to supplement supplies. Staff were very friendly.More

You have left this review for Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge, not Takarakka. But I will be sure to pass it on.
The rooms are your own little slice of nature. Everything was nice and clean. Our kids loved walking around, playing with sticks and dirt and enjoyed the birds and kangaroos. The restaurant is awesome and service was great. Lovely to come home after a days walk and have a hot shower, great meal and a comfy bed.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you again.
Had only 24hrs and it was 5hr drive each way.... we had our doubts on the capacity to relax on such an agenda. Well.. within 3 hrs of arrival we had achieved bliss. After a glorious 8km walk through a national park that has so many hidden magical places, we found ourselves lying back on squatters chairs, looking out on wallabies and all that nature had to offer. A cold one in hand didn't hurt either.
The food for dinner that evening was delicious. Highly recommend!!!
Hello, Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you had a relaxing time and enjoy your meals. We hope to welcome you again.
We have just come back from a four night stay. I would definitely return. The staff are all friendly and are happy to answer any questions. If you have any requests or concerns they are sorted quickly and efficiently. The food at the restaurant is delicious and the service is quick. The beds are comfortable and rooms clean. We had a great stay and would recommend this place to anyone visiting Carnarvon Gorge.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a heart warming review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and our customer service.
We stayed multiple nights at the lodge and found it to be overall a bit rundown for the high fees paid. Verandah timbers were rotting with dangerous popping nails, ensuites haven't been upgraded since construction (50 yrs?!), dripping taps inside and outside, wheels on trolley carts jamming. The restaurant/meals were great - the chef and hospitality staff were really good, however our room booking was incorrect even after multiple confirmations before arriving. The shop was empty (literally empty shelves!) and generally there was a tired, fed-up feeling all round. For the expense of the rooms, it was disappointing to see absolutely no maintenance being done or interest upheld for paying guests.
Thank you for your feedback. I would just like to clarify that we are currently in the middle of renovating each cabins decking and bathrooms, unfortunately we are restricted as to when we can do this maintenance to not disturb our guests. I am glad you enjoyed your meals and our hospitality. I am disappointed to only hear about it now that your booking was incorrect, I have no knowledge of this, I would appreciate it if you could call or email me in regards to this so I can make amends. We are coming to the end of our season which does mean our souvenirs are also starting to sell out however, I have ordered new souvenirs and we do keep our shelves stocked with the souvenirs we currently have. Again, I appreciate the feedback and we are hoping to have ALL cabins completed by next season.
The tented accommodation is private with a really peaceful outlook to gums, kangaroos and lots of birds. A glass of wine on the verandah was great. The rooms are very comfortable with nice new furniture and a good bed. The ensuite bath is convenient and clean although basic. The restaurant has capital city quality food - absolutely delicious with great service. The walks are fabulous from the breathtaking Bluff views to the awe inspiring gorges. This is a great place to spend two days.
Thank you so much for leaving a review. We are pleased to know you enjoyed your accommodation, meals and walks. We take a lot of pride in the food we serve out here and our customer service. We hope to welcome you again.
