Take to the skies and discover the unmatched beauty of Porcupine Gorge, an impressive canyon that has been carved into the landscape by the eroding action of Porcupine Creek over 500 million years. Be in awe as you gaze at the vibrantly coloured sandstone cliffs and lush forests from above.
Affectionately known as 'Australia's little Grand Canyon,' Porcupine Gorge is an extraordinary canyon home to contrasting towering sandstone cliffs and sparsely forested flat plains. These sedimentary rocks, more than 500 million years old, were carved by the eroding action of Porcupine River. Departing from Porcupine Gorge Camping Ground, you will take the skies to admire the unmatched beauty that this landscape has to offer. You will fly over the upper end of the basalt capped sandstone rock formation, which is an area only seen from above. In the wider section of the gorge, you will see the 'Pyramid', an isolated pillar of coloured sandstone shaped as its name suggests. As you are taken on your final sweep of the canyon, you will continue to uncover the magical qualities of this truly unique location.
