Description

A panorama of sculpted sandstone cliffs, peaks and outcrops greets visitors to Isla Gorge National Park - the striking rock formations and maze of gorges changing colour with the movement of the sun.

Spring wildflowers, rare plants and rock-wallabies can be seen. Eucalypt forests hug the ridge-tops while dry rainforests cling to gullies and shaded slopes. Watch wedge-tailed eagles and peregrine falcons riding breezes and honeyeaters feeding on wattles. Have fun finding familiar shapes in strange rock formations. Drive to Flagstaff Hill to see the remains of a hand-paved road built in 1864 .

Camp overnight or have a picnic overlooking the gorge. (Beware of loose cliff edges when walking around the camping and picnic areas or on the short track to a small natural lookout).
