Queensland's Outback

Natural Encounters


There's a reason outdoors types love the outback. Superlatives fail when you are confronted by the choice of over 20 National Parks making up landscapes that are beyond conceivable.

Sheer cliffs frame gorges filled with water so clear the sky appears trapped in its embrace. Aboriginal rock art that offers the local indigenous people a direct link with a rich culture dating back millennia can still be viewed to this day. See these natural beauties your way.

Camp for days or do a quick trip, go for a short walk and return to your accommodation that night. If you ache after a hard day of roaming around you can always soak away the tension in a mineral rich mud bath or marvel at the healing properties of hot water straight from subterranean artesian springs.

As you relax in the healing waters look up above you. One thing people from the city always find hard to comprehend when they make their way to Queensland’s interior is the stars. No ambient light means nature gets to shine. Look into a telescope at Charleville’s Cosmos Centre and prepare to regain your sense of wonder as the heavens unfold above you.
