Expedition National Park
Rugged gorges with towering sandstone cliffs, spectacular views of the Carnarvon ranges, and colourful wildflowers in late winter and spring, are highlights of this rugged outback park, which includes Robinson Gorge, Lonesome and Beilba sections.
Expedition National Park is part of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. Most of the park is covered by dry eucalypt forest.
Scenic Robinson Gorge winds 14 kilometres between sheer sandstone cliffs up to 100 metres high, lined with cabbage palms (a relic from the era of dinosaurs), bottlebrushes and wattles.
Lonesome offers spectacular, panoramic views to the southern end of Arcadia Valley, Dawson River, the Carnarvon ranges and mountain spurs.
Beilba section protects escarpment country and wildflowers provide splashes of colour in spring.
Experience this remote outback park through walks in Robinson Gorge or bush camping in all three sections of the park.
The park is part of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. All sections are remote—it’s about six hour’s drive to reach Lonesome and Beilba from Robinson Gorge—and you need to be self-sufficient.
