White Mountains National Park

Hughenden, Flinders Area

Spectacular white sandstone bluffs and gorges, brilliant wildflowers and exceptionally diverse habitats, ranging from lancewood forests to spinifex grasslands and sandy dunes, make this outback park truly unique. The park is a vast arid landscape for most of the year, but comes alive in winter with a colourful display of wildflowers. The spectacled hare-wallaby and eastern pebble-mound mouse are found in this park.

Stop for a picnic at the Burra Range lookout on the Flinders Highway, where it crosses the Great Dividing Range and enjoy views of steep gorges, lancewood forests and white sandstone shelves and peaks. Bushwalk in this remote area to discover the park's many different plants and animals. Look for a variety of honeyeaters and lorikeets feeding on nectar or for reptiles sunning themselves on the rocks. Set up camp at Canns Camp Creek camping area for an outback experience. Four-wheel-drive, or ride your mountain bike or trail bike along the access road from the Flinders Highway to Sawpit Gorge lookout, or to Poison Valley. Enjoy colourful wildflower displays as wattles, ironbarks, acacias and grevilleas bloom from May to September.
