Carnarvon Gorge is a beautiful spot and the Wilderness Lodge is a great place to enjoy the gorge nature and ambience. The tents/cabins are a fun and comfortable place to stay with a kettle, tea and coffee,, en suite bathroom and a fabulous balcony to watch the wildflife. The cafe at the Lodge is open for breakfast and lunch, but not on a Monday. Unfortunately the restaurant is currently closed due to staff shortages. However, there are two outdoor kitchens and bbqs, to use. Our plan was to buy food supplies at Injune on the journey to CG, but the Spar supermarket was already closed at 1pm as it was a Saturday. Roma or Emerald, depending on which way you are travelling, would be a more reliable place to stock up, although they are approximately 3 hours away. There is a small shop at the camp site near to the Lodge with meat bbq packs and tinned foods, but no vegetables, potatoes or salads at all. The lodge is also the closest accommodation to the many gorgeous walks and I would definitely choose to stay here again when visiting this area in the future.

We were really looking forward to dining at their restaurant but unfortunately it was only available to house guests and not any caravanners or others staying elsewhere. Bit disappointing (for us). The grounds looked lovely and green and well maintained. Others we spoke to recommended it so we would probably stay here if we returned to Carnarvon Gorge.

Nice accommodation so close to the national park. Even though it was basic, the room/tent (glamping) was very adequate and comfortable. It's a shame the restaurant was not open for dinner while we were there due to staff shortage. However, cooking in the outdoor communal kitchen (there was not much info or pictures, hence my photo upload) wasn't too bad. The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and has super friendly staff and price was reasonable - highly recommended. Will stay there again for sure.

We loved our stayed at Carnavon Gorge Wilderness Lodge in a luxury safari tent. It had a great hot shower and we really appreciated that we could now prepare our own meals in the central large gathering room with a beautiful place. There are bbqs, hot plates, saucepans, large fridges and freezers and you have your own plates, cutlery and glasses in your room. Loved the little deck out the front and the closeness to walks in the gorge. There is also a great french pattiserie and coffee shop on site.

Our group of four spent 2 nights in twin safari cabins. I was a bit worried when I read some of the recent reviews about canvas blinds falling apart etc. I must say that we had no issues at all. Cabin was clean and beds comfy. Shower was super hot with a few signs of wear and tear. The room heater and aircon worked well but weather was great so did not use much. I am grateful to the owners/managers for running this lodge in such a remote location and the price you pay cannot be compared to what you could get elsewhere for same price. Was so glad we booked this place close to the main walks. The only complaint I have is that with nearly 30 cabins there were just 2 luggage trolleys and we had to wait more than 30 mts to access one the day we checked out which is not good enough. Also would have felt more secure if we could lock the cabin from the outside as well. I had never seen an echidna in the wild at close quarters before so that was special. We loved sitting on the verandah watching the birds and kangaroos.
