Welcome to Explorers’ Loop

But the real highlight out here is around 40km from Forsayth via a dirt road. On a private cattle station, the startling private spring-fed oasis of Cobbold Gorge is one of those unexpectedly beautiful outback finds. Cobbold Gorge Village runs three-hour bushwalking tours that culminate in a boat cruise through the stunning narrow gorge.

Back on the Savannah Way, Georgetown (population 244) is the endpoint of the loop. The main attraction here is the flash Terrestrial Centre, home to a visitor centre and the Ted Elliot Mineral Collection, a shimmering collection of more than 4500 minerals, gems and crystals from all over Australia.
