Queensland's Outback

Nature and Wildlife

There’s an oasis between the desert dunes. Have you heard of it? It’s called Boodjamulla National Park. If you find it, you’ll find peace under the shade of the trees. Out there, history literally runs beneath your fingers as they brush over the rough edges of million-year old fossils embedded in limestone.

You can dip your canoe oar and break crystalline while listening to the fairy-wrens or catching a flash of the crimson finch. Camooweal Caves National Park is drier with the scent of eucalypts ever-present in the open woodlands. Grass plains of Spinifex and wattle shrub land stretch out before you and the creek bubbles gently beside you as you set up camp for the.

In the south lies the National Parks Research Station in Charleville famous for its close encounters with one of the country’s most endangered species – the bilby. These timid little marsupials with their long soft ears and big dark eyes are sure to steal your heart.
