Description

In Currawinya National Park, waterbirds and migratory shorebirds are drawn in their thousands to globally important wetlands in the otherwise dry and dusty mulga lands of south-western Queensland.

With more than 200 bird species, large kangaroo species and reptiles, wildlife watching in this park is a stunning experience. The park is also home to a population of greater bilbies enclosed within a 25 square kilometre predator-proof fence. Drive (four wheel drive only) to saline Lake Wyara and freshwater Lake Numalla early in the morning. Fish, or simply relax under a shady tree, along the Paroo River. Bush camp at Ourimperee Waterhole behind the Woolshed or near the old Caiwarro Homestead site on the Paroo River. Visit cultural heritage sites.
