Information

The Upper Gorge Walk is located within Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park. 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 seven kilometre Upper Gorge walk begins at the eastern end of the camping area, ascends a ridge and meanders along the edge of the gorge offering spectacular scenery. The loop track returns along the creek edge where you will encounter a diversity of plant and animal life. This walk is recommended for experienced bushwalkers and should only be undertaken in the early morning. Keep to the walking track at all times. Stay clear of cliffs and steep rock faces and take care on uneven slippery track surfaces. Allow three and a half hours walking time to complete this difficult track.
