Description

In the Salvator Rosa Section of Carnarvon National Park, the spring-fed Nogoa River and Louisa Creek meander beneath a backdrop of rocky sandstone crags and spires. Spyglass Peak and The Sentinel, sculpted by millions of years of weathering, dominate the skyline. A four-wheel-drive vehicle is needed to access the park and to visit Belinda Springs and Major Mitchell springs. See vivid orange-barked yellow jacket trees as you take the 1 kilometre return walk to the base of Spyglass Peak. See wildflowers in spring. At least 10 of the park's 300 plant species are rare or threatened. Photograph the sunrise over the park's bluffs and spires. Go birdwatching. Self-sufficient visitors can camp at the Nogoa River camping area. April to September is the best time to visit.
