Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park The emerald waters and lush vegetation of Lawn Hill Gorge form a beautiful oasis in the outback, attracting abundant wildlife and offering exceptional views, walks, canoeing and cultural sites. Park Features: Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park is one of Queensland's most scenic national parks. Situated within the remote north-west highlands of Queensland, the park features spectacular gorge country, sandstone ranges and World Heritage fossils. Lawn Hill Gorge is formed by Lawn Hill Creek, which is fed by numerous freshwater springs from the limestone plateau to the west. The magnitude of the sandstone cliffs lining the gorge, its emerald waters and lush vegetation make it a visual splendour. Serving as an oasis, the spring water and surrounding vegetation attract an abundance of wildlife. The Waanyi Aboriginal people have strong cultural ties with the park while pastoralists of European descent have more recent historical connections. Boodjamulla National Park lies on ancient sandstone of the Constance Range, between the Barkly Tablelands to the south-west and the black soils of the Gulf Savanna Plains to the east. Lawn Hill Creek and the Gregory and O'Shanassy Rivers flow all year round, providing a stark contrast to the dry, parched landscape during the dry season Camping: A camping area with toilets and showers is provided close to Lawn Hill Gorge. There is a ranger base near the camping area. Only one vehicle per campsite is permitted and the campground is not suitable for caravans, buses, motor homes or camper trailers over 4m. Permits are required and fees apply. Bookings are necessary from Easter to October and should be made well in advance. For the rest of the year campers can also self-register on arrival, subject to wet season closures.
