***NOTE: as a response to COVID-19, all camping areas in Queensland’s national parks are closed to the public until further notice. Check park alerts for updates.
Journey along back roads to the spectacular wilderness of Sundown National Park on the Queensland–New South Wales border. With its dramatic landscape of sheer-sided gorges, tree-lined ridges and peaks rising over 1000 metres above the Severn River, discover for yourself the park’s wild isolation.
Base yourself at one of Sundown’s camping areas and explore the surrounding park. Burrows Waterhole, Nundubbermere Falls, Reedy Waterhole and The Broadwater camping areas are scattered along the Severn River, and Red Rock Gorge camping area is on a ridgetop above sheer, lichen-stained cliffs.
Head out on foot for a bush camping adventure and experience the park’s rugged, secluded landscape at its finest. Explore up and down the river, or tackle challenging multi-day hikes up side creeks, into gorges and up formidable ranges, stopping to pitch a tent at one of the many remote camp sites.
Book and purchase your camping permit in advance. Bookings can be made on-line, over the counter or by phone.
