Western Circuit

Stanthorpe, Southern Downs Area

The Western circuit at Sundown National Park veers off from the Permanent track near The Broadwater camping area and heads away from the river to open high ground. Woodland birds such as spiny-cheeked, yellow-faced and fuscous honeyeaters and golden whistlers favour this area near the western boundary of the park. Take in expansive views up the valley into the park as well as to the south and west. Descend back to the camping area via open flats where eastern grey kangaroos graze.
