PERSONAL

My wife Michelle was desperate for a short break and Carnarvon Gorge was a long-desired destination.

A hidden gem it seems, as the few people that actually venture in come out raving about the place.

Carnarvon Gorge is between Roma and Emerald and is about 650 kms from Brisbane so we chose to take our time getting there and back stopping halfway there in Eidsvold, and halfway back in what turned out to be Toowoomba after failing to find accommodation in Dalby.

We did the main 20 km return walk to the end of the gorge stopping off at just a couple of the side walks that take you into the more spectacular areas that Carnarvon is reknowned for. We had a few nights here so we chose to head out again for more walking the following day to what turned out to be my favourite spot up the Mickey Creek track.
