Description

In central western Queensland, Idalia National Park protects extensive mulga woodlands, the headwaters of the Bulloo River, and tributaries of the Barcoo River system. The broad, sandy, river red gum-fringed watercourses are usually dry, except following rain.

Mulga covers most of the park, but Mountain yapunyah, Dawson gum and lancewood occasionally grow in the low bendee woodlands on the escarpments and steep slopes. Yellow-footed rock-wallabies live in Idalia's high rocky escarpments.

Wind, sun and time are nature's carving tool here and sunset is the paintbrush. Follow the unformed trail with markers to show the way to explore the rock's colours and shapes under this striking wave-shaped cliff. Take a short climb for an eagle's eye view of the surrounding plateau stretching out.
