Expedition National Park

Taroom, Banana Area

Free Entry 

Expedition National Park - in the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt - is a park of rugged gorges, spectacular views, remote campsites, wildflowers, wildlife and a rich human history. It protects a wealth of Aboriginal cultural sites, locations named by explorer Ludwig Leichhardt in 1844 and remnants of pastoral heritage.

At Robinson Gorge section in the east, cabbage palms, bottlebrush and wattles line scenic Robinson Gorge as it winds 14 kilometres between sheer sandstone cliffs up to 100 metres high. From Starkvale camping area, follow walking tracks to Robinson Gorge lookout, Shepherd's Peak or to a natural lookout over the Cattle Dip - a spectacular permanent waterhole in the gorge. Watch Australian king-parrots and rainbow lorikeets feed in summer, and golden whistlers and grey fantails in winter.

Lonesome and Beilba sections in the west lie on the border of the Carnarvon Range. Panoramic views, brigalow and softwood scrubs are a feature while wildflowers provide splashes of colour through the Beilba section in late winter and spring. Squatter pigeons occur in open woodlands and wallaroos can be seen. No toilets are provided and facilities are limited.

Visitors to Expedition must be totally self-sufficient. Bring drinking water and sufficient fuel for your trip.

Nuga Nuga National Park and Lake Nuga Nuga

Rolleston, Central Highlands Area
Free Entry
Lake Nuga Nuga (adjacent to Nuga Nuga National Park) is the largest natural water body within the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. It provides a valuable habitat for waterbirds, and in the right season flowering waterlilies are a sight to behold. The lake can dry up in times of drought. Bird watchers will find the lake a haven for pelicans, swans and numerous water birds. Lake Nuga Nuga National Park contains Mount Warinilla (offering views over the lake and park) and protects remnants of dry rainforest scrub in a area that has been extensively cleared. A bush camping site, with no facilities, is located in the park on the banks of Lake Nuga Nuga. As this park is remote, be sure to bring adequate supplies of food, water and fuel.
