Rungulla National Park

Gilberton, Gold Coast Area

Rungulla National Park, 116 kilometres south west of Forsayth in north western Queensland, boasts a wide range of sandstone formations, including outcrops of large sculpted caves and pagoda-like sandstone features.

In the drier months, you can use the sandy bed of the wide Gilbert River as a walking path to explore the park. Look for tracks of wildlife in the sand and relax in the welcome shade of overhanging riparian trees.

The Gilbert River, and its spring-fed ecosystems and permanent waterholes provide many opportunities for observing wildlife. During the day, birds can be seen in the canopy and reptiles spotted in rocky crevices. The river and permanent springs in the park provide refuges for wildlife, especially as the water holes shrink in the drier months. Many animals are most active around dawn and dusk and nocturnal mammals may be seen at night by spotlight.

Stay overnight in the camping area offering three separate bush camp sites close to either the Gilbert or the Percy River. Camping is not available during the wet season closure from November 1 to March 31.
