Diamantina National Park

Bedourie, Diamantina Area

Free Entry 

In Diamantina National Park, the mighty Diamantina River, one of Queensland’s longest, cuts braided channels through gibber flats, sand dunes and red-capped ranges. The park supports a large number of rare and threatened plants and animals, including the greater bilby. Some of the lakes are listed as wetlands of national importance, while old station buildings, cemeteries and hotel ruins are reminders of historic pastoral use. It is also a special place for Traditional Owners, the Maiawali people.

The rich colours of this park will delight eager photographers. Visit the information room at the old homestead to learn about the park's history. See changing landscapes and pastoral relics on the self-guided Warracoota Circuit Drive (approximately 90 kilometres return). Visit Janets Leap for a bird's eye view of the Diamantina and experience bush camping at Hunters Gorge or Gum Waterhole. Camping fees apply. Go fishing, canoeing and birdwatching and enjoy spectacular wildflowers which emerge after rain.
