RvTrips' review

12 Aug 2015

The only way to access Cobbold Gorge is with a tour guide - this is to protect the unique area surrounding this beautiful spot. Our three hour tour started at the Cobbold Reception Building with a short 4WD bus trip through the cattle station, an informative walk and then down to the water to board an electric powered boat for our trip through the narrow gorge.  

During the walk Adam (our tour guide) gave us a history of the area while showing plants with edible fruit and leaves and how the Aboriginals used certain plants for food, medicine and catching fish.  They rubbed the leaf of a soap bush in the water and this soap would spread and stun the fish for a short time.  The Aboriginals would then spear the fish for food - amazing. 

We were shown John Corbett’s grave, climbed to the top of the rock escarpment and then made our way back to the water. Among the caves in the rock are the remnants of a raised platform used during the WWI - believed to be a man hiding from the authorities. Lots of butterflies and bird life as you walk through the gorge and we were shown some Aboriginal rock art – hand prints on the rock walls.

This Gorge was quite different to others we have seen and is so narrow in some places that you can reach either side. There are plenty of photo opportunities and water is available to re-fill your bottle before or after the walk through the bush. I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Adam who is passionate about the bush and outback Australia.
