Simply gorge-ous!

There's no better way to grasp the uniqueness of the narrow gorge with its majestic, 30-feet sheer walls than to get up-close-and-personal with it. This three hour tour with your Savannah Guides includes an interpretive guided walk to the escarpment providing an informative insight to the geology of the rugged sandstone formations to look down over the gorge structure; and a boat cruise where you glide on custom-made, electric powered boats in almost eerie silence ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. There's every chance of seeing one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles. This will be an unforgettable highlight of your trip to outback Queensland, Cape York or Savannah Way.

Breakdown of tour:

  • The Gorge Tour is a 3hr tour which involves an escarpment walk, a boat cruise through the gorge + time taken for travel/loading & unloading of guests in vehicles.
  • Guest are transported to the gorge in an aircon 4WD bus and provided with commentary.
  • Toilet facilities are located in the bus shelter where guests will be before participating in the walk
  • The walk component of the tour runs for approximately 1hr 15min/1h30mins. This will always depend on the fitness and speed of the group and how many questions etc are asked whilst stopping to interpret the geology, flora and fauna along the way. The walk is relatively easy with the reward of a magnificent view of the gorge below – however guest may choose to sit it out (wait by the boats) or opt for a seat halfway. 
  • The boat cruise runs for 45 mins. This is mostly silent, with commentary when necessary. It does not matter which end of the boat guests sit at as the boat faces the opposite way on return journey (motor at each end). 

Don't forget to bring:

  • Hat and sunscreen
  • Covered walking shoes
  • Small bottle of water which can be refilled during the tour
  • Camera with plenty of available memory - you'll need it!
