Great for experienced walkers and campers, this site is reached by a 9.7 km walk from the visitor information centre through the gorge; there’s no access for vehicles. Once there, you’ll find a small campground (the maximum number of campers is 10) in a rainforest setting with a cliff backdrop. A composting toilet and a picnic table are the only facilities, so you’ll need to bring all self-sufficient goods and equipment. Note: record your trip details in the registration book at the park’s information centre, and log out when you return. Big Bend is a designated campsite on the Carnarvon Great Walk and is 14.8 km from Gadd’s camping area.


This campsite is located in Carnarvon National Park

Tucked away in this vast, rambling park in Qld’s Central Highlands is the magnificent Carnarvon Gorge. Boasting towering white sandstone cliffs, breathtaking side gorges and some of the finest Aboriginal rock art in Australia, this 160-million-year-old natural wonder is the region’s most popular tourist attraction. The Mt Moffat section of the park features grassy woodlands and magnificent sandstone outcrops. Further west, the isolated and unspoiled Ka Ka Mundi and Salvator Rosa sections of the park offer wildlife-watching and bush camping areas. Bookings are required in advance for all sites except Bunbuncundoo Springs and Nogoa River.
