Deep in the heart of the Gulf Savannah region in Far North Queensland is a hidden outback oasis – Cobbold Gorge. This Savannah Guide Station is located on a working cattle property and features a unique, narrow gorge set amid rugged sandstone formations with spectacular 30-metre cliffs that narrow to just two metres wide. To protect the fragile environment, access is by guided tour only. Tour the gorge in an electric boat and interpretive walk to explore the ancient geology with an expert guide and cross over Australia’s first fully Glass Bridge – an awesome and unforgettable experience. Discover wildlife, go bushwalking or birdwatching, spot a crocodile and experience life on a cattle station.
There is no need to rough it! Cobbold Village accommodation ranges from air-conditioned ensuite rooms to shady campsites. There are camping and powered sites in the grassed camping area. MacDonalds Deck Bistro and Bar provides snacks, meals and a bar to relax and take in the peaceful atmosphere. The friendly staff will help make your visit memorable. If you are limited for time, consider flying in – an airstrip is located nearby in Forsayth with transfers available at a fee.
