QLD Central Tablelands - Salvator Rosa Carnarvon National Park

Spring-fed Nogoa River and Louisa Creek wind through a picturesque broad valley beneath craggy sandstone outcrops in the Salvator Rosa Section of Carnarvon National Park. At the western edge of central Queensland’s sandstone belt, Salvator Rosa contains deeply eroded and spectacular rock formations, such as Spyglass Peak and the Sentinel, which dominate the skyline.

Eucalypt woodland and open forest cover most of the park. The wildflower displays are spectacular in spring. At least 10 of the park’s recorded 300 plant species are rare or threatened.


Salvator Rosa lies between Springsure and Tambo. From Springsure, head 114km west along Tambo Road to the park turnoff. From Tambo, head 42km north on the Alpha road then turn east towards Springsure and drive 102km to the Salvator Rosa turnoff.
