White sandstone bluffs and gorges characterise the rugged wilderness area of White Mountains National Park. Varied plant communities are protected here, including lancewood forests, spinifex grasslands, open woodlands and sandy dunes. The park is home to the spectacled hare-wallaby and eastern pebble-mound mouse. Bushwalking in this remote area allows you to discover the park's many different plants and animals. During winter and early spring, enjoy colourful wildflower displays as wattles, ironbarks, acacias and grevilleas bloom. Look for a variety of honeyeaters and lorikeets feeding on nectar. Camp at Canns Camp Creek campground however during the wet season, December to April, the access road may be closed.
Children are welcome.
