Additional Notes Carnarvon National Park is located in Queensland’s central highlands, between Roma and Emerald. Within Aboriginal culture, the dreaming says that the rainbow serpent Mundagurra created Carnarvon Gorge as he travelled through the creek system, coming in and out of the water and carving the sandstone as he travelled. A number of fragile Aboriginal art sites still exist on the sandstone walls of the gorge. Grazing runs were established in the area during the 1860s and in 1932 the Carnarvon National Park was formed. The area covered by the park is currently approximately 298 000ha.
