Rising abruptly above the surrounding plains, Blackdown Tableland National Park is a cool oasis. Covering approximately 47,950 hectares, this sandstone plateau boasts colourful wildlife, spectacular views and a range
of nature-based activities. Blackdown is the traditional home of the Ghungalu people, who have visited this place for thousands of years and have left behind rock art; vivid reminders of their special culture.
Things to Experience
Walking Tracks will take you to the park’s heritage sites, creeks and waterfalls. Lookouts are provided to take in stunning views and capture that spectacular photograph.
Four-Wheel-Driving Follow the Loop Road, pass magnificent sandstone outcrops, alive with basket ferns and king orchids, then stop at Mitha Boongulla lookout for great views of the surrounding plains. Suitable for high clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles only.
Viewing Wildlife The best way to see Blackdown’s birdlife is to wake with them at Munall camping area.
By day, look carefully on sandstone ledges for basking skinks, geckos and goannas. By night, take a torchlight stroll to glimpse gliders, owls and insectivorous bats taking to the air.
Picnic Areas Picnic tables, gas barbecues and toilets are provided for day visitors at Yaddamen Dhina lookout.
Access Blackdown Tableland National Park is located between Dingo and Bluff. The six-kilometre sealed road up the tableland is steep and winding so is unsuitable for towing heavy trailers or caravans.
