Tambos Wilderness Way

Tambo, Blackall-Tambo Area

Tambo's Wilderness Way is a self-drive tour through an area of rugged beauty, known as the ‘Roof of Queensland’. The tour traverses a landscape of deep gorges and vast cliff lines. Enjoy vistas of tangled ranges where the wind and rain have created massive sandstone formations which contrast starkly with the grey-green bush. The area provides habitat for some unique flora. Camp or go bushwalking in Salvator Rosa National Park.

Tambo's Wilderness Way is 320 kilometres and would take one to two days to complete. The road is accessible by conventional vehicles, however, a four wheel drive is recommended. The road may become impassable in the wet.
