After a 53km dusty drive from Forsayth the bus arrived here. A pond with bird life and kangaroos at the camping/dining/reception area saw us take a 4WD bus down to the gorge. Our guide took us on varied terrain, explaining local bus tucker, some history, before a quiet electric boat took us along the gorge. We did not see any... More

Did the Gorge tour with Gemma who is a very knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. She took time in sharing her love for this area while giving information on bush tucker and historical stories. The walk is not a difficult one, the ground is uneven so may not be so suitable for some mobility aids. The second section of the tour... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Trip to the Gorge was a unique experience. Would recommend Cobbold Gorge Tours as a must do of the Savannah country.

We thought the tour guide (Steven) was so passionate about passing on his knowledge and information about the bush surrounding the gorge and the gorge itself was a great experience. The room was clean and comfortable. The food at the restaurant was excellent and the cook did an amazing job to take orders, cook and manage the bar alone. The... More

Excellent caravan site, great new amenities, fabulous huge infinity pool and the gorge tour was far beyond our expectations. The staff were very pleasant and our tour guide a font of knowledge. A great experience.

Our visit was only short, but also very memorable. All the reception and restaurant staff were so, happy, helpful, and ready to please you. We also took the cruise, and enjoyed the spectacular views as well as the information and history of the natural wonders. Thanks to all the staff.

The title should say it all. I either want to keep this to myself because it is so beautuful or I wonder why it isn't swarming with international tourists. I said before I got here I am gorged out having seen so many throughout the Northern Territory and the Pilbara region of WA but this place has the WOW factor.... More

Fantastic experience. Gorge is stunning and an absolute 'must do'. Knowledgable and entertaining Guide (Stephen). Amenities better than we've seen in many hotels - they even provide bath mats and hand towels! Restaurant, Bar and infinity pool also second to none.
