This tropical oasis, surrounded by livistona palms, pandanus and white cedar trees, is located in the vast Gulf Savannah which stretches from the Northern Territory to outback Queensland.
The magnificent landscape can be experienced on a challenging bushwalk or by jumping in a canoe.
The Island Stack walk involves climbing a steep track to the lookout where an adjoining 1.7km walk takes you around the ‘table top’ for impressive panoramic views. An easy walk to the Cascades leads you to tufa formations where you can swim in the cool spas.
It is located 220km south-west of Burketown, and 340km north-west of Mt Isa.
Camping is available in the national park − bookings are necessary from April to October. Facilities include toilets and cold showers (no generators allowed). Fees are $6.15 per person per night or $24.60 per family per night.
