The impressive Porcupine Gorge National Park extends 25 kilometres along Porcupine Creek, which has carved a breathtaking canyon in its path that reveals strata of sedimentary rocks spanning hundreds of millions of years. Its centrepiece is the Pyramid, an isolated monolith of multicoloured sandstone rising from the floor of the gorge, shaped as its name suggests.
About the region
Towering cliffs of coloured sandstone, pockets of vine forest and deep permanent waterholes along Porcupine Creek contrast strikingly with the savanna plains surrounding Porcupine Gorge. The gorge lookout is about 60km north of Hughenden. The Pyramid camping and day-use areas and the Pyramid track are another 11km further north. The Yirendali Aboriginal people welcome you to their traditional country and ask that you respect their special place.
