Gorge TourFOR COBBOLD VILLAGE GUESTS

The Gorge Tour now includes Australia’s first fully GLASS BRIDGE, spanning a 13-metre gap and a 19-metre drop into cool spring fed water below.

There’s no better way to grasp the uniqueness of the narrow gorge with its majestic 30-metre sheer walls, from the bottom of the water to the top of the escarpment, than to get up-close-and-personal with it. This 3-hour tour with your Savannah Guide includes an circular interpretive guided walk to the escarpment, providing an informative insight to the geology of the rugged sandstone formations and the chance to look down into the gorge structure as you cross the NEW Glass Bridge; and a boat cruise, where you glide on custom-made, electric powered boats in almost eerie silence, ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. You may even spot one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles.

Our Cobbold Gorge Tour will be an unforgettable highlight of your trip to outback Queensland, Cape York or the Savannah Way. Please note access to Cobbold Gorge is by guided tour only. Bookings are essential. You should wear covered walking shoes, a sun smart hat, sunscreen and bring a water bottle, which can be refilled during the tour.

Cobbold Gorge Tour departs Cobbold Village daily at 10am and 1.30pm. (Note October departures are at 8am). Remember to bring your camera with plenty of memory available, you’ll need it!

What’s IncludedCOBBOLD GORGE TOUR BREAKDOWN

  • The Cobbold Gorge Tour is a 3-hour tour. This time includes a circular escarpment walk, snap a selfie as you cross the glass bridge, a boat cruise through the gorge and time taken for travel/loading and unloading of guests in vehicles.
  • Guests are transported to Cobbold Gorge from Cobbold Village, in an air-conditioned 4WD bus and provided with commentary.
  • Toilet facilities are located in the Interpretive Centre at Cobbold Gorge, where guests will be before participating in the walk.
  • The walk component of the tour runs for approximately 1-hour 15-minutes to 1-hour 30-minutes. Timing depends on the fitness and speed of the group and how many questions 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 from the new glass bridge. However, guests may choose to sit it out (wait by the boats).
  • The boat cruise runs for 45-minutes. This is mostly silent, with commentary when necessary. It doesn’t matter which end of the boat guests sit at, as the boat faces the opposite way on the return journey (motor at each end).

The price is a reduced rate, offered exclusively to guests staying with us at Cobbold Village. Bookings are essential. Secure your place using the Book Now button.
