3 Hour Gorge Tour

Gorge Tour

Simply Gorge-ous!

There's no better way to grasp the uniqueness of the narrow gorge with its majestic, 30-metre sheer walls than to get up-close-and-personal with it. A three hour boat cruise and tour of the gorge will be an unforgettable highlight of your trip to outback Queensland, Cape York or Savannah Way.

Custom-made, electric powered boats glide through the spectacularly sculpted gorge walls in almost eerie silence ensuring minimal disturbance to wildlife. There's every chance of seeing one of the large population of resident freshwater crocodiles.

An informative insight to the geology of the rugged sandstone formations is followed by a guided bushwalk to the grave of pioneer John Corbett and then to the top of the escarpment. It's a relatively easy walk with the reward of a magnificent view of the gorge below.

Access to Cobbold Gorge is by guided tour only.

Robin Hood Cattle Station Experience

Cobbold Gorge is part of a working cattle station

Photo: Walking in the footsteps of their cattle pioneers.

Ever wondered about life on working cattle station? There is no better opportunity to get a taste of outback Queensland than an insider's view of Robin Hood Station in the heart of the Gulf Savannah.

Robin Hood Station- supposedly named because it adjoined the Sherwood mining lease - is a 1284 square kilometre cattle grazing property run by third generation cattleman, Simon Terry and his wife, Gaye.

Visit the cattle yards, dams and outbuildings while your guide offers rare insights to the cattle grazing industry. You'll see firsthand the implications of today's management and future challenges for people who love their land and want to pass it onto the next generation of North Queensland cattlemen. Relax over a traditional, outback smoko before taking a relaxing cruise on the Kimberley Sue Dam.

Minimum numbers apply so book ahead for your chance to experience Robin Hood Station on a unique, four hour tour.
