Snap a selfie and tick Cobbold Gorge off your Bucket List! Your Cobbold Gorge Tour includes Australia’s first fully glass bridge, spanning a 13-metre gap and a 19-metre drop into cool spring fed water below – impressive!

The best way to grasp the uniqueness of this narrow gorge with its majestic 30-metre sheer walls from the bottom of the water to the top of the escarpment is to get up-close-and-personal with it. The three-hour tour with your Savannah Guide includes a 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 glass bridge, plus a boat cruise where you glide on custom-made, electric powered boats in almost eerie silence, ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. You might even spot one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles!

This 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, and bookings are essential. You should wear covered walking shoes, a sun smart hat, sunscreen and bring plenty of water, which can also be refilled during the tour.

Your Cobbold Gorge Tour departs from Cobbold Village at 10am daily (April to September) plus 1.30pm during peak times (June to August). October departures are at 8am.

Queensland Outback Events


  • For your Cobbold Gorge Tour you’ll be transported from Cobbold Village to Cobbold Gorge in an air-conditioned 4WD bus.
  • Your Cobbold Gorge Tour is three-hours duration, including travel to and from the gorge, a circular escarpment walk to the top of the gorge and over the glass bridge, a boat cruise through the gorge – all with commentary, plus time for loading and unloading of guests in vehicles.
  • Toilet facilities are in the Interpretive Centre / bus shelter at Cobbold Gorge, where you’ll be before and after your gorge tour. There are also toilets located to the left of Reception at Cobbold Village.
  • The walk component of the tour is roughly 2km on a dirt track to the top of the gorge and along sandstone escarpment, across the glass bridge and back. This circuit takes approx. 1-hour 15-minutes to 1-hour 30-minutes, and timing depends on the fitness and speed of the group and how many questions are asked, all while 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. It’s not possible to do just part of the walk, so some guests may choose to sit it out (wait on a seat by the boats, or back at the bus shelter).
  • Your boat cruise runs for 45-minutes. This is mostly silent, with commentary when necessary. It doesn’t matter which end of the boat you sit, as the boat faces the opposite way on the return journey (motor at each end).

Please wear closed in walking shoes, a sun-smart hat, sunscreen and bring plenty of water (bottles can be refilled at the Bistro or at the bus shelter before and after the tour, plus limited water is available at the pontoon area, part way through the tour).

Remember to bring your camera with plenty of memory available, you’ll need it!
