Carnarvon Gorge – a favourite place

Carnarvon Gorge is one of my favourite places. I first took Mt. Gravatt High School students there in 1966. We were all thrilled at the spectacular landscape. M family and my father-in law were with us.We got stranded by heavy rain and had to wait two extra days till Carnarvon Creek went down and we could get our bus out. We sent a walking party to the nearest cattle station for emergency food. I took Mt. Gravatt High students there again in 1969 and 1972, and have been back often since. Today there is a resort lodge and Takaraka Camping area with a shop just outside the National Park. Some photos from 1966 below
