Isla Gorge is a national park in Queensland, Australia, 415 km northwest of Brisbane, gazetted in 1964. It contains a rest area with toilets and a camping area, situated along the Leichhardt Highway just south of Theodore.

The national park is upon the traditional Aboriginal lands of the Kongabulla Clan of Iman country,[1] the carpet snake people, and Wulli Wulli country.[2]

The north-western section was expanded in 1990 to include the hand-laid rock road which once ran from Rockhampton to Roma as part of the wool run.[3]
