Currawinya National Park


In Currawinya National Park, waterbirds and migratory shorebirds are drawn in their thousands to globally important wetlands in the otherwise dry and dusty mulga lands of south-western Queensland.

With more than 200 bird species, large kangaroo species and reptiles, wildlife watching in this park is a stunning experience. The park is also home to a population of greater bilbies enclosed within a 25 square kilometre predator-proof fence. Drive (four wheel drive only) to saline Lake Wyara and freshwater Lake Numalla early in the morning. Fish, or simply relax under a shady tree, along the Paroo River. Bush camp at Ourimperee Waterhole behind the Woolshed or near the old Caiwarro Homestead site on the Paroo River. Visit cultural heritage sites.

This park is remote. Visitors need to be well prepared and self-sufficient in fuel, food and drinking water.
