Hell Hole Gorge is part of the Powell plateau which forms part of the Grey Range. The deeply incised Powell Creek with steep, dissected escarpments and vertical cliffs up to 45m high drains through the centre of the area along with the smaller Spencers and Gorge Creek.
Hell Hole Gorge National Park is scenically attractive and provides opportunities for camping and related activities such as 4WDing, hiking, bird watching, swimming and photography. The rugged gullies associated with Powell Creek invite exploratory walks looking for unusual plants or glimpses of the diverse animal life. There are no formal walking trails.
Hell Hole Gorge National Park is located approx. 180km North of Quilpie via Adavale along unsealed roads. These roads travel through privately operated cattle stations; access and road side camping off or along these main roads is prohibited. Bush camping is permitted in the park with camping permits required.
This park is open to 4wd’s and off-road camper trailers only.
For more information about the parks rules and regulations and what to know before you go be sure to pick up a detailed brochure from the Quilpie Visitor Information Centre.
