he central Queensland towns of Miles, Injune and Roma, give the 4WD vehicle trip to and from Brisbane an extra dimension. Giving the journey a sense of history and local hospitality. The overnight stay, on the outgoing leg of the journey, at David Gordon's Myall Botanical Garden at Glenmorgan is an unexpected pleasure. David and his wife, Dorothy, started the natural bushland garden in the 1940's. It is now considered to be one of Australia's oldest collection of native flora, featuring grevilleas, banksias and acacias.

Although Carnavon Gorge was offically discovered by Europeans in 1857, Aborigines have lived near the gorge for at least 20,000 years. Fine examples of complex 'stencil' rock art and engravings reflect the ancient social and material culture of these people. Sunrover Expeditions' experienced guide will lead you to several of these 'sites' during your stay in Carnarvon Gorge, giving you an insite into Aboriginal culture and the art.
