Carnarvon Gorge National Park Walk Out To The Art Gallery
We headed off early for our walk in Carnarvon Gorge National Park. I really don’t know what to say about this walk other than wow! It was the best bushwalk I have ever done and I have done more than my fair share of them in a large range of places. The range of different features to stop and have a look at or walk out to off the main track is mind blowing.
Carnarvon Gorge National Park Walk Is Impressive
Usually when you go on a walk there is one standout feature that you are going to look at, if you are lucky there might be two. This walk has so many it’s not fair to all the other walks. Everything you look at is different to or more impressive than the last.
We Made It To The Art Gallery
We made it as far as the Art Gallery. On the way out to the Art Gallery we stooped and looked at the Moss Garden, the Amphitheatre and Wards Canyon. We would have loved to have gone further but Amanda’s knee was playing up massively and to be honest I was pretty well buggered myself! All up we did about 25 kilometres in total and given the heat and humidity it was enough. Keep in mind that it was in May, I wouldn’t want to be doing the walk in February as the heat and humidity would make the conditions overly oppressive.
Something to keep in mind, make sure you carry PLENTY of drinking water with you. We had four litres each and it was only just enough. We’d take at least double that if doing the full Carnarvon Gorge walk out to Big Bend.
Next time we go to Carnarvon Gorge we want to be a bit fitter so we can make it all the way to Big Bend. It’s an out and back walk so you have to be careful with how far you go out, as you always have to come back the same way. That or sleep in the bush, which would have been ok too!
