Description

In Diamantina National Park, the mighty Diamantina River, one of Queensland's longest, cuts braided channels through gibber flats, sand dunes and red-capped ranges. The park supports a large number of rare and threatened plants and animals, including the greater bilby. Some of the lakes are listed as wetlands of national importance, while old station buildings, cemeteries and hotel ruins are reminders of historic pastoral use. It is also a special place for Traditional Owners, the Maiawali people.
