Isla Gorge & Gyranda Station


This trip to Banana Shire has been a real eye-opener to the natural beauty of this place, the Sand Stone Wonders. In only a few short days we have witnessed plane wrecks on mountains, crossed creeks and fished dams.


Today we’re heading for Isla Gorge and ending the day at Gyranda Station. Tree Palms and Sandstone creates a “Jurassic Park” type feel as we wander towards the top. Gyranda Station produces Cattle and has been since 1952. The Joyce Family are generational cow cocky’s who have allowed us to camp beside the Dawson River tonight at Orange Creek Weir.

Isla Gorge, one of the stars of the Sandstone Wonders region!
Gyranda Station has been producing Santa Gertrudis Cattle since 1952

The Banana Shire is the place to come looking and yes you may well run into Frank.
Head to sandstonewonders.com and the OQTA website fill you in on all the info.

ARIAT Boots are available at stockists around the country. And ARB has all the gear when you replace foot power with horsepower. Don’t forget to check out Episode 42 of the Campr series for the guide to Isla Gorge and the Banana Shire.
