Starting from the Carnarvon Gorge Visitor Centre, Carnarvon Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Battleship Spur and back via the Big Bend Walk and Carnarvon Great Walk tracks. A 30+ km return walk with the potential side trips included, this adventurous journey is one of the most satisfactory hikes in Queensland, if not the best. From the Battleship Spur, you’ll be rewarded by truly exceptional views of the gorge after spending your whole day in it. Landmarks along the way include the Moss Garden and the well-known Amphitheatre. Try to visit each one of them and stay at the creekside campsite to make the most out of your ‘Big Bend’ experience. Notice the change of terrain and vegetation as you make your way through the subtropical bush to colossal sandstone walls. This route involves rock hopping and scrambling, but the steps carved by the park rangers on the sandstone walls will aid you. Bring some insect repellent to protect yourself from the mozzies(Australian slang for mosquitoes) and expect to get wet feet. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting at the Beehive Falls Carpark on Roses Gap Road, Roses Gap, this walk leads past the Beehive Falls, to Briggs Bluff and back along a well maintained and marked track. Enjoy a hike over rocks alongside the cliff tops, with beautiful views over the Grampians all the way. Take a walk to the base of the falls, where seasonal rains fill fern-lined rock pools. This area makes for a peaceful resting spot. Moving on from Beehive Falls, the track immediately becomes steeper. An unrelenting scramble over steep slopes and rock outcrops brings you to a plateau with splendid views. Although short, this walk is challenging, with the terrain varying between flat, rocky, sandy and steep. The walk to Briggs Bluff can involve water crossings, slippery track surfaces, rock hopping and rock scrambling. Visit the Beehive Falls after rain for the best views, and in spring to see the wildflowers. Keep in mind that the rocks on the trail can get very slippery after rain.

There are also plenty of kangaroos in the area, as well as an abundance of birds. There are several rock pools along the river that make for an inviting dip on a hot day. If you do go swimming at Bells Rapids, take care as the river can have strong undercurrents. Dog owners will be happy to know that dogs are welcome at Bells Rapids. This walk can get quite steep and rocky at points, and some sections aren't well marked. Although the climbs aren't long, the gradient will surely get the blood pumping.
