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.

What an attraction and an experience - that alone will bring us back in the future but on top of that the staff offered a premium service to top off the experience. We booked with Melanie over the phone and arranged our site for staying 3 nights and going on the tour of the gorge (We extended to stay another... More

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

We decided to head to Cobbold George not that far from Georgetown. We took our 21 foot Caravan and although were going for 1 night stayed 3 it was that good. 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

I visited the Gorge a few years ago, but only as a day visit. This time, due to the connections between the the two iconic trains servicing this region, I was able to stay 2 nights. The highlight has to be the Gorge tour on those delightful, silent boats which enables one to really absorb the natural ambience of this... More

I stayed for one night at Cobbold Gorge on our way to Karumba - myself and a 14 and 15yr old. We stayed in the boundary suites. The road out to Cobbold is pretty good - about 30kms of sealed road and the rest unsealed, but the road was ok, even though I did not have a 4WD. The pool... More
