Porcupine Gorge Lookout is about 62 kilometres form Hughenden in outback Queensland. We obtained a printed sheet from the Visitor Information Centre giving directions to the Gorge, pointing out places of interest along the way. 

Pyramid Lookout and and camping grounds is another few kilometres down the road. We spoke to several people staying at camping grounds - there are basic facilities and the sites need to be booked in advance. It is all well sign-posted and the National Park has provided plenty of information about Porcupine Gorge and the formation of this very interesting area.

We decided to walk to the bottom of the Gorge which is about 1.2 kilometres and descends about 120 metres - I was very pleased we had our walking sticks, cameras and plenty of water. The walk took us about 1.5 hours for the round trip - well worthwhile and highly recommended. When we reached the top again we noticed a pile of long sticks that other visitors had used as walking sticks - left beside the trail for the next walker to use.
