Graham S

Wonderful 4WD tag-along tour. Christian gave a great commentary along the way, the 2 way radio being a great idea - we could talk back & forth along the way and ask questions. We even spotted a Koala with a joey on its' back at the side of the road. It then crossed in front of us and ran up a tree before we could get the camera out. Called up Christian and at first he couldn't believe it, but turned around smartly and came back. We were all amazed and stood watching for some time. Continued on then to a great morning tea at the turn around point. Stopped on the way back and the Koala was still sitting in the same tree. A great way to fill in a morning. Highly recommended. Thanks again Christian & Caity.

The scenery shifts from undulating flats to spectacular sandstone escarpments and the highest tablelands in Queensland. This place is loaded with deep histories, from ancient geological origins, to those that called this home for millennia. 

Carnarvon Gorge is located 155km North of Injune, and 105km South of Rolleston, Queensland. It stands out in the landscape with its white precipice sandstone and steep rise to the Consuelo Tableland high above. 

Nyanda Station is situated amidst some of Queensland's most breathtaking geological formations, offering unparalleled scenery that simply demands attention. Previously hidden from view, Nyanda Station now unveils its natural splendour for all to behold.
