  • 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.
