The journey to Carnarvon is Gorge-ous

A cheeky whirly-wind is twirling in the distance like a prima ballerina, dancing in the red dirt where central Queensland cattle country is beginning to concede to crops.
If you’re travelling by car from Rockhampton by mid-afternoon you’ll arrive at Carnarvon Gorge, part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef Sandstone Wilderness where soft, white sand will cushion your feet after a day of trekking over gurgling creek crossings galore.
