Today we went to Cobbold Gorge which is only accessible on an organised tour which includes a walk of about two hours around the gorge and across a glass bridge. It is then followed by a boat ride along the gorge to get a water level view.

We were only able to get booked on an afternoon tour from 1pm meaning that it is in the heat of the day. We arrived at the gorge at around 11am and enjoyed the bar and pool area having a cold drink. Lunch was available from 11:30am so we had fish and chips before preparing for the tour.

We were all ushered onto a 4WD bus to take us to the actual gorge. The group was split in two each with their own guide.

We began walking down to the water level and across a pontoon bridge where the boats were moored. We then proceeded around the gorge having bush tucker pointed out to us before arriving at the glass bridge that spans the gorge, 19m above the current water level. After this is was a walk back down to the boats.

Our group climbed aboard one board and slowly cruised up the gorge until we reach where it was blocked by a recent fallen boulder.

By the time we returned from the tour we needed to head straight back to Forsayth as it was getting late and we did not want to be driving around sunset as the wildlife is more active. As it turned out the weather changed and we drive back with high winds and lightening, very little in the way of rain, just a few drops on the windscreen.
