Australian Nature Guides is Carnarvon Gorge's only locally owned tour guiding company. Established in 1999, we have helped thousands of visitors to connect with nature on a different level in one of Queensland's iconic National Parks. Head Guide Simon Ling brings a wealth of knowledge of the Gorge's plants, animals, landscapes and cultures to each of his tours. You can judge Simon's abilities and knowledge by the quality information on this website (as he constructed it). Simon is currently researching yellow-bellied glider vocalisations and collecting local plant specimens in his spare time, having recently finished a degree in ecology and biodiversity. You can meet Simon at his afternoon slideshow presentations on the Gorge held at 5 pm. on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at Carnarvon Gorge Wilderness Lodge, which are open to the public (all welcome).
