Every person who lives in Queensland at the very least should visit this place at least once. The views are stunning, the tours are brilliant and the whole experience still has the genuine charm that so any other commercial tourist spots have long lost. My wife and I visited at Easter 2015 for our 2nd anniversary and enjoyed every minute,... More

My senior group tour to Cobbold Gorge last September was a unique and first time experience for everyone. A comfortable 4WD vehicle picked us up from Forsayth Railway station and we drove the 42 kms to our accommodation on the Cobbold Gorge property. The cabins were modern and well appointed for our outback adventure and all the staff were very... More

Beautiful Experience - we stayed near by at Finnegan's Rest and had transfers to and from the gorge but you can stay there as well. There is a shop, restaurant and pool on location. The tour through the gorge was amazing and due to the narrowness of the gorge a thoroughly intimate experience. NOTE: there are two stages to the... More

We booked a boundary hut in this dry and parched time and found a blissful paradise. Since when do boundary huts come with infinity pools? So glorious to swim at sunset! Dinner was delightful. We went to see the Gorge, which is simply breathtaking in its geology and formation. The fern gardens fascinated me and of course the laid back... More

We stayed in a boundary hut at the Cobbold Village for 3 nights, mainly to see the gorge itself. The tour was excellent with our knowledgeable guide Stephen giving the European and indigenous history of the area. The view from the top down into the gorge was stunning and the boat trip was equally fascinating. The wonderful thing about gorges... More
