Description

Amid the gorges and rocky formations of the Gowan Range tablelands, Idalia National Park protects extensive mulga woodlands, the Bulloo River's headwaters and threatened wildlife. Seven species of macropods, including yellow-footed rock-wallabies and endangered bridled nailtail wallabies live here. 15 native species of fuchsia grow here.

Explore the park on the self-guided drive. Enjoy panoramic views from Emmet Pocket lookout. Murphy's Rockhole, a shady gorge, is a good place for wildlife watching. Visit Old Idalia, an old mustering camp and stockyards. Walk to the wave-shaped cliff overhang. Bush camp at the peaceful Monk's Tank camping area, hidden in mulga woodlands. Camping fees apply. Go spotlighting. Photographers will delight in the vivid sunsets.
