Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park
Boodjamulla is one of Queensland’s most exceptional parks, boasting spectacular gorge scenery, diverse wildlife, exhilarating walking and canoeing, and fossils deposits dating back 25 million years. Here, Lawn Hill Gorge carves a serpentine ribbon of green through the dry savannah landscape, creating an oasis in the outback.
The gorge’s vivid orange sandstone cliffs tower above emerald green lime-rich waters of Lawn Hill Creek. Paddle your canoe serenely through lily-clad waters on the Lawn Hill Gorge canoe trail.
Make an early start and walk the short but strenuous Island Stack to experience first light over the gorge, or hike the Constance Range track for sunset views.
Appreciate the connection between the Waanyi Aboriginal people and their land on the Rainbow Serpent track, and marvel at rock art on the Wild Dog Dreaming track. Stay in Lawn Hill Gorge camping area and revel in the peace of the outback and this special oasis.
Discover ancient fossils on the Riversleigh fossil trail at Riversleigh World Heritage Site, and gain a fascinating glimpse into the distant past.
Riversleigh is part of the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites (Riversleigh/Naracoorte) World Heritage Area, famed for its outstanding examples of the record of life and evolutionary history.
