Dominated by an ancient gorge system, which forms a real watering hole in an otherwise arid landscape, Boodjamulla National Park provides visitors a rare chance to kayak, hike, surfing, and camp in the remote wilderness of this amazing landscape.
Put, and it is probably one of the most charming locations you will visit in Australia.
Front towering sixty meters red sandstone cliffs that offer epic sunset lookouts, to crystal-clear green waterfalls you can swim under, there is lots to do and view in this great park, meaning you and your camera would not ever get bored.
Boodjamulla national park is placed in the remote Gulf Country of North Queensland, not far from the Northern Territory area. Unless you want to take a trip, driving here is a must.
The closest towns of importance are either Doomadgee, Gregory Downs, or Burketown, all of which are a long way from anywhere too.
Coming from East to West, the popular Savannah road trip we undertook passes not far from the park, so we made a perfect timed detour here, stopping the night at a free camp in Gregory Downs on the way.
There are minimal fuel or vehicle facilities close to the Boodjamulla national park area, so ensure they are well prepared with sufficient supplies and necessary car checks in location before you come here.
When to visit
The top time to visit Boodjamulla national park is actually during the winter months of April – September when the chance of heavy rain is significantly lower.
The most rain falls during the hot months of November – February, and access during this time is severely limited.
During winter, the day temperatures are quite cooler, making hiking and exploring the park more relaxed.
