Lake Bindegolly Circuit is located within Lake Bindegolly National Park. A string of salt and freshwater wetlands at Lake Bindegolly National Park form an important wildlife refuge in the arid zone. The park is home to more than 195 species of birds, 80 other kinds of animals and 300 species of plants, including the gnarled tree Acacia ammophila which is threatened with extinction. Lake Bindegolly National Park conserves one of the most important wetland systems in south-west Queensland.
Explore around Lake Bindegolly on a 9.2 kilometre circuit track (two and a half to three hour walk of a moderate grade) which skirts the lake edge then returns along scrub-covered sandhills. Follow the markers and stay on the sandy track to protect the park's fragile vegetation. Wear a hat and sunscreen and take water. Note: sections of the walking track may be covered by water when the lake is full.
An observation point is located at the edge of the lake for watching some of the 60 species of waterbirds that visit the park, including pelicans, swans and the rare freckled duck.
