The gorge lookout is about 60kms north of Hughenden. The Pyramid camping area and gorge walk are another 11kms further north along the unsealed Kennedy Developmental Road. This road from Hughenden to Lynd Junction runs parallel to the western edge of the gorge and, when dry, is accessible to all vehicle types with care. Travellers should expect to encounter bulldust, corrugations, exposed rocks, creek crossings, other vehicles, native wildlife, cattle and road trains. After storms, the road may be temporarily closed or inaccessible to conventional vehicles and caravans.
