In the north western corner of Queensland, a short distance south of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and close to the border with Northern Territory, lies a gorgeous oasis known as Lawn Hill gorge, located in the Boodjamulla National Park. The waters are safe to swim in, teeming with fish and birds aggregate around the water source in abundance. Indarri falls are a short bush walk away, and a beautiful place to cool off in the midday heat. The more adventurous can swim back to camp, or float back as we did on noodles and inner tubes.
Nearby in the surrounding dry savanna bush you can find one of the richest mammal fossil deposits in the world, at Riversleigh.
It is remote and a long trek in, but worth staying a few days to take in some of the walks, enjoy a swim, hire a kayak, or just relax and enjoy the views
It closes for the wet season around early November.
Hello Beautiful people. I hope you remember me its Sandy from Cape York. I was the lady that had a painting session with the kids Oscar, Hannah & Xavier at the Colours Sands while Mum & Dad went for a walk. And I was there for the biggest Baramundi Oscar will ever catch. I really hope you are all well. I just saw some photos and it reminded me of you all. I would love to know what you are up to nowadays & see how much those beautiful kids have grown up. I’m well living a busy life in Vic on a farm. Fell in love and became a mum to 4 amazing adult kids. Renovating a 140 old home and looking forward to getting on the road again one day. Xo to you all Sandy
