Description

Lake Bindegolly National Park is a remote but accessible park on the edge of Queensland's channel country. This park is a bird and sunset-watcher's paradise, distinguished by desert landscapes, a string of salt and freshwater lakes, thousands of waterbirds and a rare tree. Acacia ammophila, a large gidgee-like tree with golden flowers clustered in balls, grows along sand dunes fringing the eastern side of the lakes. Camping is permitted on a reserve just outside the park, but not on the park itself.

From the park entrance, walk four and a half kilometres to the lakeside bird-viewing site. See swans, pelicans, and (possibly) rare freckled ducks. Continue along the 9.2 kilometre circuit track as it skirts the lake's edge and returns via scrub-covered sandhills. Look for wedge-tailed eagles and Major Mitchell cockatoos. Tiny marsupials seek shelter in the samphire plants at the lake edge. At home in the park are tiny box-patterned geckos, skinks, painted dragons and sand goannas.
