Head to Salvator Rosa National Park via Tambo’s Wilderness Way

Get away from it all in the Salvator Rosa National Park. Crystal clear springs add more than ten million litres of water a day to the peaceful Louisa Creek and Nogoa River as they meander beneath a backdrop of rocky sandstone crags and spires. Named by explorer Sir Thomas Mitchell in 1846, Salvator Rosa is at the western edge of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. The course-grained sandstones of Salvator Rosa are very crumbly. Erosion of the sandstone has left behind many interesting features that dominate the skyline, including Spyglass Peak and the Sentinel.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Wildflowers add colour to the landscape in spring. Large white flannel flowers and cream sprays of narrow-leaved logania contrasts with the pink flowers hanging from the shrubby Homoranthus. There are more than 300 plant species recorded in the park and at least ten are considered rare or threatened.
To get to the park from Tambo there are two routes you can take via the ‘Wilderness Way‘ loop road. To take route one, head 42km north on the Dawson Developmental Road then turn east towards Springsure and drive 102km to the Salvator Rosa turnoff. At the turnoff, drive south for 50km via ‘Cungelella’ to the park boundary and a further 4km to the camping area.
Route two is for high clearance 4WD vehicles only. Drive 8 km south of Tambo, on the Landsborough Highway, turn east onto Mount Playfair Road (‘Wilderness Way‘). After approximately 90km this road intersects the Cungelella Road. Turn south and travel 30km via ‘Cungelella’, to the park boundary.
A bush camping area is situated on the broad sand bank of the Nogoa River, 2.4km from the park entrance. Camping permits are required and fees apply.
You can find out more about camping in Salvator Rosa here.

Once set up there is plenty to do in the Park. A self-guided drive directs you to the park’s most outstanding features, including flowing springs and towering sandstone formations. There are plenty of opportunities for birdwatching, photography and bushwalks.
Salvator Rosa also offers three short walks to explore the fascinating natural wonders of the area. If considering off-track bushwalking on the park please ensure you have good navigational skills, plan your walk carefully and take a topographic map, compass and GPS.

                                                                                                            

Salvator Rosa presents self –sufficient travellers with the opportunity to really get away from it all in this beautiful remote part of Outback Queensland.
