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

Stayed in Georgetown caravan park & drove the 90 k/m to the resort half dirt road but you can camp there if you wish. The place was fantastic & the tour 10 out of 10. Stephen our guide was excellent & the gorge itself was very special & different to others we have seen in other states. Take your bathers... More

We drove to the gorge from Mt Surprise via Georgetown. A 2 1/2 drive so allow time as we arrived just as the tour was ready to depart. It is on private land so tour only. A short ride on a small off road bus to the gorge with commentary, an interesting & relative easy walk above with talks on... More

The tour itself requires that it be provided by one of two accredited tour organisations, because the Gorge was discovered as recently as 1991 and lacks almost all safety features, like railings and fences. However, once you arrive at the Cobbold Gorge's impressively modern tourist complex, you are taken on a large bus over and through dry river beds, twisting,... More

We went and stayed for two nights at Cobbold Gorge and went on the gorge tour. It is an amazing tour in such beautiful surroundings. You'll be sorry if you don't go see it. We will go back.

We were only going to stay for a couple of days but of course ended up staying longer. As you drive into the village the first thing you see is the infinity pool overlooking the dam, stunning. The bushwalk and tour of the gorge itself was amazing, photos don't do it justice. Our guides Alex & Gemma were fantastic, very... More

Thanks for leaving a review about your stay at Cobbold Gorge. We do have a pretty special piece of Australia as our back yard. The road from Forsayth to Cobbold Gorge (our front gates) is maintained by the Etheridge Shire Council meaning we are not allowed to touch it with our machines. They have advised us that they are keeping... More

Road out to Gorge was Great with mainly Dirt but in good condition. Caravan sites were excellent with tiered sections on river pebble with water and power. The gorge... More
