Continue for 24km and turn right onto Robinson Creek Road. Travel a further 1.5km and turn left at a T-intersection onto Glenhaughton Road. Follow Glenhaughton Road for approximately 40km then turn left at the signposted entrance to Expedition National Park.From here the park is accessible by 4WD only. Follow the track to a T-intersection, turn right and follow the road to Starkvale camping area.

    From the north, turn off the Dawson Highway 1km east of Bauhinia Downs and follow the Mapala-Fairfield Road for 93km. Turn right at Oil Bore Road and continue 7km before turning left and driving a further 16km along a 4WD sign-posted track.

    Roads to the Robinson Gorge section are impassable in wet weather. Weather forecasts are available from the Bureau of Meteorology. When you are in the area, listen to ABC radio on AM747 for the weather forecast for the 'Central Highlands and Coalfields' district. If rain is forecast, leave the park before the rain starts or remain in the park after rain until the roads dry out. For your safety, it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to drive on park management roads during or following rain.

    Park features

    Expedition National Park is part of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. Most of the park is covered by dry eucalypt forest, the mature spotted gum forest being the only intact forest of this type. Mount Cannondale in the Amphitheatre contains one of the largest intact softwood scrub remnants in the central highlands. Patches of dry rainforest scrub grow in narrow side gorges and wildflowers flourish along the cliff tops.

    For thousands of years, Aboriginal people lived in this area, leaving behind stencil art and other sacred sites. The explorer Ludwig Leichhardt passed through in 1844 during his journey to Port Essington near Darwin.

    Robinson Gorge section

    Scenic Robinson Gorge is one of the main features of Expedition National Park, located on the Expedition Range between Taroom and Rolleston. The gorge winds 14km between sheer sandstone cliffs up to 100m high. It begins as a broad shallow basin in the north and narrows to a deep pool and narrow gorge towards its southern end.

    Lined with cabbage palms (a relic from the era of dinosaurs), bottlebrushes and wattles, this section of park is home to several rare plant species including Eucalyptus rubiginosa and Leucopogon grandiflorus.

    Walking

    Walking tracks are provided in Robinson Gorge section of Expedition National Park. There are no walking tracks at Lonesome or Beilba sections.

    Expedition National Park's walking tracks have been classified to help you select a walk that matches your bushwalking experience and fitness. Take time to read the track grades before walking in the park. If you intend to bushwalk away from the tracks described below, obtain a topographic map, compass and GPS, and ask for advice before setting off. Ensure you carry adequate drinking water.
