About us COBBOLD GORGE & VILLAGE

Cobbold Gorge sits on a 5,000-hectare privately owned tourism lease that has been excised from Howlong Station – a privately-owned cattle property which the Terry family have been grazing with Brahman cattle since 1964.

Simon Terry owns and operates the property with his wife Gaye and their family. Simon moved here as a young child, and discovered the gorge in the early 1990s. Soon afterwards, Cobbold Gorge Tours and Cobbold Village was established, and the Terry family have been sharing their home and unique experiences with visitors ever since.

From the outset and through to this day, the main criterion of Cobbold Gorge Tours and Cobbold Village is to ensure minimum environmental impact. In 2009, this commitment saw the creation of the 4,720-hectare Cobbold Gorge Nature Refuge and wildlife corridor.

We welcome you to be immersed in the breathtaking beauty and serenity of the Gulf Savannah country, and we’re delighted to welcome you to Cobbold Gorge Tours and Accommodation.

Meet THE TERRY FAMILY

Purchasing the property in 1964 and moving to live on Howlong Station in 1971 – the Terry family are your hosts and welcome you to Cobbold Gorge & Cobbold Village.

Formation COBBOLD GORGE

Queensland’s youngest gorge is vastly different from others due to its extreme narrowness. Closing to a mere two-metres wide in places with 30-metre cliffs either side from the bottom of the gorge to the top of the escarpment. Impressive.
