Information

The 13,800ha of semi-arid Barkly Tablelands that make up Wiliyan-ngurru National Park are characterised by open eucalypt woodland, spinifex, turpentine wattle shrubland and extensive areas of Mitchell grass plains. A variety of birds including waterbirds and woodland species can be seen in the park at different times of the year.

The caves and sinkholes formed when water percolated through 500 million year-old layers of soluble dolomite creating caverns linked by vertical shafts up to 75m deep. Visitors should be extremely cautious around the edge of the sinkholes. Public entry inside the caves is not allowed. A safe viewing area is located at Great Nowranie cave.

Parks and forests protect Queensland's wonderful natural diversity and scenery. Help keep these places special by following these guidelines.

- Leave pets at home—domestic animals are not permitted in national parks.
- Remember, this is a national park—everything is protected.
- Do not feed wildlife or leave behind food or scraps.
- Use a fuel stove—fires are not permitted on the park.
- Rubbish bins are not provided. Do not bury rubbish—take it when you leave.
- Limit the spread of weeds and pathogens by ensuring clothes, shoes, gear, bikes and vehicles are clean and free of seeds and soil before arriving at the park.
- Stay on formed roads—bicycles and trail-bikes are not permitted on walking tracks nor the boardwalks. Riding over vegetation, breaking branches, taking shortcuts and forming new tracks damages the environment.
- Unlicensed trail-bike riders and drivers are not allowed in parks and forests. Riders and drivers must be licensed and vehicles must be fully registered.
- Avoiding driving and riding on unsealed roads during and after heavy rains.
- Respect park visitors—minimise the noise and dust from your riding and driving.
