Sandstone Park at Carnarvon Gorge

We made a detour to visit Carnarvon Gorge once again.  We were here 6 years ago but without a dog. It is a national park where no domestic pets are allowed.  There is now a new camping area that opened just three weeks ago called Sandstone Park where we can camp for $20 per night with a dog outside the national park.  The views are wonderful and it is a lovely and restful place to spend a couple of days and nights.  There is a 360 degree view from the camping area on top of a plateau which is private property.

This is taken from under the awning of one of the neighbouring caravans.  We are sitting drinking in this wonderful vista of the Carnarvon sandstone cliffs.

On day one we parked outside the Visitors Centre and left Maxi in the van while we climbed up to Boolimba Bluff which was a 6.4 TOUGH climb.  The next day, Andrew got a lift down to the Visitors Centre at 7:30am and he walked some 24 kms all around - some of which we had both walked 6 years ago.  I stayed at the caravan park with Maxi all day, chatting to anyone who was there.  Andrew then got a lift back up.
