The Expedition National Park, featuring Robinson Gorge forms the easterly section of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. Carnarvon Gorge and Salvator Rosa form the central ans westerly regions. There are a number of walking tracks for the hiker. The tracks, although marked are quite remote and a map of the area should be carried. There are two camping areas, the main one being Starkvale campsite. Toilets and a water tank is available, however the tank should not be relied upon for drinking water. A 4wd vehicle will be necessary to access the campsites by vehicle.

The Cattle Dip forms a deep narrow gorge with permanent water in the bottom. It is possible to climb down to the water by following the Robinson Gorge Lookout walking track and taking the marked turn to access the gorge. Then you will need to follow the creek in the gorge to the Cattle Dip. This section is not marked and there is no way out of the gorge at the Cattle Dip (unless you are an experienced climber), so make sure you allow enough time to get back and you take note of where you entered the gorge.
