Driving Directions

The park is 189 km west of Mount Isa and 24 km south of Camooweal. Take the Urandangi Road 8 km south of Camooweal and turn left on the park boundary road after crossing the fourth grid from Camooweal.

The Camooweal Caves are sinkholes in the ground. Here, water has percolated through 500 million year-old layers of soluble dolomite creating caverns linked by vertical shafts up to 75 m deep.
The 13,800 ha of semi-arid Barkly Tablelands that make up Camooweal Caves National Park are characterised by open eucalypt woodland, spinifex, turpentine wattle shrubland and extensive areas of Mitchell grass plains.

A variety of birds including waterbirds and woodland species can be seen in the park at different times of the year.

Please take all rubbish with you when you leave. Bring adequate fresh water (drinking water is not provided) and a fuel stove.

No camping at this National Park.
