Wildlife is booming at Brindingabba National Park, located near the New South Wales–Queensland border on Budjiti and Kurnu Baakandji Country. You have a good chance of seeing red kangaroos and a huge variety of birds, including emus. You could be lucky enough to spot a brolga with its distinctive orange head. 

Arrive by the scenic Hungerford-Bourke Road which is part of the Dowling Track outback driving route through channel country. Then drive around tree-lined creeks, red clay deserts, grasslands, woodlands and the mulga plains of outback NSW.

There are lots of places to stop and train your binoculars or camera on the wildlife, scenery and wildflowers. Woodlands are a haven for birds including rare grey-crowned babblers, Hall’s babblers and mistletoe birds. Among the trees or on the grasslands you could find an echidna foraging among the leaf litter. Stop by a waterhole for an early evening or morning bird watching session and you may see zebra finches and rainbow bee-eaters.

The park is ablaze with colour from late Autumn to early Spring, when yapunyah and lancewood trees have cascades of bright yellow flowers and wildflowers on the mulga shrubland range in colour from lilac and pink to white to reddish brown. Sunsets are often spectacular, and you can vie with your friends as to who can take the best photo.

The park has many Aboriginal cultural items such as wells and stone artefacts. Please keep to marked tracks to avoid disturbing them.

After your outback adventure, pitch a tent at the campground and stretch out on the ground under a carpet of stars.
