  • After spending some time in the Flinders Discovery Centre and being provided with a "What To See Guide" by the Staff, my husband and I set out for the Gorge. This is a self-guided Tour where there are...  more »
  • Visited and was going to camp, but it was too hot and there was not much water in the gorge, so we did not stay Would be great in winter 
  • Had a great time camping for 2 nights here. Plenty of flies and the walk down takes it out of you, but all is worth it. My boys 6&7 got down in 18min and up in 19 so can be done quite quick if you lik...  more »

  • This park is easy to get to and the drive is not difficult. The gorge has on display 145 Million years of our planets history and is spectacular. The descent track down into the gorge is steep but not difficult and once on the floor the views of Pyramid rock are incredible. The facilities at the camping ground are good but basic and be prepared in the evenings for a visit from the cheeky and inquisitive Bettongs (Rat Kangaroos). Start out early and its easy to spend most of the day exploring the bottom of the gorge, and don't forget you camera. Take a drive to the lookout which is about 10 Km from the entrance to the camping area.
  • Great walks. Went to the lookout first which is 10km before the camp ground. Impressive. The walk down to the pyramid near the camp ground was great. 1.2km each way. Give yourself about 1.5 hours as you can walk around a bit down the bottom.
  • Great place to see very easy short walk from parking area should not be missed
  • Good camping spot. You do need to pre-book and allocate a space but worth it
  • Porcupine Gorge also known as the Grand Canyon from Australia. There is a 2km walk down in the gorge. Try to go there in the morning cause there are not much shadow. Here is also the big pyramid rock. You can also go to the Porcupine Lookout. Take the Wikicamps app to find it.
