Sundown National Park Camp Site

Sundown is 3–4 hours drive south-west of Brisbane.

The Broadwater camping area at the southern end of the park can be reached by conventional vehicle from Stanthorpe along 76km of bitumen road via the Texas Rd (62km) and then Glenlyon Dam Rd (14km) and 4km of good gravel road (Permanents Rd). From Tenterfield, travel 52km west on the Bruxner Highway to Mingoola and then north 12km to the park entrance.

To reach the park's eastern boundary (and 4WD entrance) it is 16km from Ballandean via Curr Rd and Sundown Rd. A rough four-wheel-drive track then leads 20km to Burrows' Waterhole camping area. It is about two hours from the entrance to Burrows’ Waterhole.
