We are leaving from Taroom to go to Robinson Gorge area and then on to Canarvon/Mt Moffat any advise on great places to camp(have gps) and the one's to avoid would be appreciated. Rough tracks ok(if there are any), have not booked any camp spots as don't like doing so not knowing what they are like. If they are full we will just move on.
Thanks for your help
Cheers Lyndon & Bernadette

North of Taroom on the HWY is lookout into Isla Gorge. Used to camp there (no facilities)

Haven't been to Robinson Gorge for while.

Mt Moffatt is a great area. It is national park and ranger station as you enter. Lots to see (paintings, chimneys, molong arch, kenniff cave, etc) depending on time of visit it can be very dry and dusty.
The lion's lookout up the top of the hill is a nice spot but camps available down the bottom and would be great if water is about (like now)

Watch fuel. last fuel is Injune and you if staying for a while you may drive around the roads a bit and still have to get back to Injune.

Will get a camp spot at Carnarvon without booking if it is not school holidays.

It is a long way around from Moffatt to carnarvon gorge. The Mt Moffatt road stops at the top lookout. (only a short hike from Battleship spur)

Better time to go is when cooler (for walking). Summer can be hot and can get floodbound very easily if raining.
Have a great trip. It is great area.

Spot on Alan. Mt. Moffatt is a great spot. You can pick up fire wood just before you enter the park.
A great spot to visit out of school holidays.
