Wave Rock Trail

Blackall, Blackall-Tambo Area

Wave Rock Trail is located within Idalia National Park. This 144,000 hectare park, in Central Western Queensland protects extensive mulga woodlands, the headwaters of the Bulloo River and threatened wildlife, including a translocated population of bridled nailtail wallabies. Explore the gorges and rock formations of Idalia's Gowan Range tablelands. As you emerge from the dense mulga, catch surprise views of rugged escarpments, home to yellow-footed rock-wallabies. You may also see other macropods grazing along the creek flats.

The Wave Rock Trail is a 1.2 kilometre return walk of an easy grade. Departing from Old Idalia, walk past the old ship's tank to reach the cliff overhang shaped like a wave. Wind, sun and time are nature's carving tool here; sunset is the paintbrush. Panoramic views from the top of the cliff give an idea of the size of the park and its diverse vegetation. Allow one to two hours to complete this walk.
