Carnarvon Gorge Weather and Road Report.

Carnarvon Gorge Weather forecast:

Locals use two weather forecasts to figure out what to expect for the Gorge: the Bureau of Meteorology (Central Highlands and Coalfields forecast) and Weatherzone (Rolleston forecast).

If you're heading our way on the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of May, pack some warm things as it's about to get cold...

Recommendations: Check with the Rangers for local conditions and recommendations. Be extremely cautious of narrow gorges during heavy rainfall. Bring extra food in case of isolation due to flooding if visiting during the wet season.

Carnarvon Gorge Road Report:

Bitumen Section: This is an unfenced road; beware of stock. Some of the grids are a bit rough and should be approached with caution. Otherwise in good condition.

For river heights, check the Bureau of Meteorology plot for Carnarvon Creek at Rewan. Normal creek height is approximately 0.5 metres. This will give you some idea of how high the water is over the road at the Rewan Crossing on the road to Carnarvon Gorge. This crossing can be avoided by utilising the Rewan Road, however the crossing on Ingelara Station is unavoidable for visitors to the Gorge.

Dirt Section: This is an unfenced road; beware of stock. Some of the grids are a bit rough and should be approached with caution. The council has recently re-sheeted and graded the dirt section all the way to the Park entrance and the road is in relatively good nick. However there are sections of loose gravel and corrugations, which require caution. The road from the Park boundary to the National Park Information Centre has also been graded.

Fire Season Report:

The recent wet seasons have kept wildfires in the Gorge to a minimum. The only burnt patches are from prescribed burns lit by the Rangers for environmental and safety reasons.
