Honeycomb Gorge is a must-visit location when in Carnarvon.
Due east of the town into the Kennedy Range National Park, it's perfect for a four wheel driving bush-camping adventure under a star-filled night sky. The beautiful gorges and red rock landscape of Kennedy Range National Park is about a two hour drive east of Carnarvon.
The most popular site within the park is Honeycomb Gorge, a rock face formed by wind and water spray from a seasonal waterfall above the cliff-face. An intriguing feature which has created a mass of hexagonal holes leading to the "Honeycomb" name. Rising up to 100 metres above the valley, with red sand dunes, spinifex, wattle and mallee trees scattered throughout the area, this is what the Aussie outback is all about.
Go bushwalking and explore gorges and sandstone cliffs, see native animals and birds, and look out over the vast plains of pastoral leases. Sunrise and sunsets bring awesome colour changes!
Bushwalking trails run from the northern visitor site and camping area, and take you into gorges where you'll see honeycomb-like rock formations.
