Currawinya National Park

Currawinya's lakes, rivers and wetlands are a striking contrast to the harsh sandplains and rocky ranges of semi-arid south-western Queensland. These wetlands are among the most important inland waterbird habitats in Australia.

Evidence of Aboriginal occupation, and more recent relics of pastoral activities dating from the 1860s, are scattered across the park. Together they remind us that humans have long influenced the landscapes of today.

Currawinya's Lakes: Two large lakes, separated by only a few kilometres of sand dunes are the centrepiece of a fascinating mosaic of habitats across the park.

Things to See & Do: Extensive lakes and wetlands make Currawinya ideal for birdwatching. Walk rather than drive near the lakes and you will see more birds and preserve fragile ecosystems.

Fishing: Fishing is permitted in some areas of Currawinya National Park Only live bait caught adjacent to the national park can be brought into the park.
