Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Spectacular creek and gorge scenery located in Wakaya country between Burketown and Camooweal. Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park is one of Queensland's largest in area and most remote is renown for its beautiful gorges and ancient riverine vegetation. The water that feeds the area actually springs from the sandstone plateau to the west.

Home to many species of freshwater fish the park is difficult to get to without a 4WD and almost impossible after heavy rain. Other animals of note in the park include freshwater crocodile and the northern snapping turtle, wallaroos and miniature bats live here too. Aboriginals have had a long association with the park reflected in the many rock paintings found throughout the area.

The last 300km from Mt Isa to the park is unsealed. Some parts of the park have remnant rainforest and large fossil deposits exist in the some sections of the sedimentary sandstone rock.

Camping is permitted in the park at lawn Hill Creek, permits must be obtained prior to camping. Permanent rangers are stationed within the park to assist if you get into trouble. Bushwalking is a popular pastime here but can be dangerous around some of the gorges.

There are no other facilities within the park visitors must bring their own food and water supplies. Canoe hire is available and is a great way to explore the gorges and do some bird watching.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
