Isla Gorge is a great place for an inland stopover. The picnic and camping area overlooks the gorge and is just 1.3km off the highway. Camp overnight and watch the sun set over the orange-coloured cliffs of Isla Gorge. Parks in this region are remote and undeveloped. Visitors must be well prepared and self-sufficient.

Hazards: Natural cliff lines are not far from the camping area. Take care and keep away from cliff edges—they can be deceptive and are often closer than you think. Sandstone is brittle and may crumble unexpectedly. Please supervise children at all times and take extra care when using binoculars or cameras at these sites.
