discover the beauty of Carnarvon Gorge…
… and its many hidden treasures.
The gorge runs for 35km at the heart of the 302,000 hectares Carnarvon National Park, reaching depths of 600m near its mouth, and is one of Queensland’s most spectacular and popular natural features.
Just five minutes drive to the mouth of the gorge where your walking adventures begin, Takarakka Bush Resort is the perfect base for your stay, and we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do.
The only accommodation and camping in the gorge open all year round, Takarakka is set on 100 picturesque acres surrounded by Carnarvon Creek, providing a protective haven for both guests and wildlife.
Choose from self-contained accommodation, bring your caravan, roll out a swag or try a Taka Safari Tent for some glamping, all in a tranquil bush setting – ideal for a private getaway, or time out with family and friends.
To help make your stay complete, we offer information sessions, tours, entertainment, meals, our famous Bush bar, a well-stocked general store including souvenirs, beer, and wine plus excellent facilities. It doesn’t get better than that!
With the great Australian outback as our backdrop and surrounded by the majestic cliffs and expansive landscape of Carnarvon Gorge, Takarakka is the ultimate wilderness resort to start your adventure into one of Queensland’s iconic destinations.
You’ll need an average of 4 – 6 days to explore, walk, rest, eat and play, and as the park is so popular and in demand, we recommend you book online to avoid disappointment.
