Off the beaten track this trip is a true wilderness experience with rocky escarpments and the steep riverbanks of Dawson River. The dirt road leading into the escarpments is generally well-maintained and suitable for 4WD vehicles. You’ll find the turnoff to Nathan Gorge 23 km south-west from Cracow along Cracow Road or 42 km north-east of Taroom along the Cracow Road.
Nathan Road, a graded track off Cracow Road is sign posted and leads a scenic path across hills and gullies into the gorge. You’ll pass through private property, so expect to open and close a couple gates along the way.
Because of its isolation, there’s very little traffic and no designated camp site; the road ends with a turn around. If you plan to stay, it’s a case of finding a spot on the roadside or in the bush, depending on your mode of travel.
