Very challenging
Starting from Gadd’s walkers’ camp, Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the West Branch campsite via the third section of the 87 km Carnarvon Great Walk, crossing multiple creeks (usually dry) along the way. Don’t forget to look back at the stunning gorge as you traverse the sandy & arid lands of Carnarvon Park. Although the area is usually hot & dry, you may find yourself amidst a surprisingly green environment after decent rainfall. Look behind the hills to see Mount Moffatt, standing out with its basalt top. Both the Gadd’s campsite and the West Branch campsite have toilets and water (needs to be treated). Keep in mind that you’ll need a permit to access Carnarvon Park and the said campsites. This walk is closed from the 1st of November to the last day of February. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes). Let us begin by acknowledging the Bidjara & Karingbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
