QLD Outback - Bladensburg National Park

Flat-topped mesas, plateaus and residual sandstone ranges are a scenic backdrop to Bladensburg National Park’s vast grassland plains and river flats. This large, remote park protects examples of the Mitchell Grass Downs and Channel Country in outback Queensland.

Mitchell and Flinders grasses grow on the plains while river red gum and coolibahs fringe Surprise Creek. Open woodlands of western bloodwood and mulga grow on mesas and plateaus, lancewood and spinifex grass cover steep slopes and escarpments and Normanton box grows in the broad valleys.

The park is home to a wonderful variety of wildlife, from kangaroos and wallaroos to dunnarts, native marsupial mice and birds such as emus, spotted bowerbirds and brolgas. Many birds are at the extreme boundary of their range here


Bladensburg is 17km south-west of Winton
