Cobbold Gorge sits on a 5,000 hectare privately-owned tourism lease, which has been excised from Howlong Station. Howlong Station is a privately-owned cattle property, which the Terry family have been grazing with Brahman cattle since 1964.
Simon Terry, who owns and operates the property with his wife Gaye and their family, moved here as a young child. He discovered the Gorge in the early 1990s. Cobbold Gorge Tours and Village started soon afterwards, and the Terry Family have been sharing their home and unique experiences with visitors, ever since then.
From the outset and through to this day, the main criterion of Cobbold Gorge Tours and 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. We welcome you to Cobbold Gorge Tours and Accommodation.
Purchased the property in 1964 and moved to live on the station in 1971. They are your hosts and welcome you to Cobbold Gorge & Village.More Info
