    Best times to visit

    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Livingstone National Park and State Conservation Area. Here are some of the highlights.

    Autumn

    With a milder climate, and the mornings crisp and dewy, autumn is a great time to visit. Bring your camera to capture images of the many iconic animals in the park, such as eastern grey kangaroos and swamp wallabies.

    Spring

    Spring is a great time to go walking, mountain bike riding, horse riding and 4WD touring through the network of trails when the weather is generally milder. Wildflowers are in full bloom, and the colours are captivating and so is the scent in the air.

    Summer

    Visit early in the day when it's cooler and take the time to walk through the park's winding trails and appreciate the wonderful plants and animals that call this park home along the way. It's also a great time for birdwatching.

    Mobile safety

    Outback safety

    Safety is of high priority in outback areas. In summer, temperatures can reach up to 50°C in some places. Food, water and fuel supplies can be scarce. Before you head off, check for road closures and use our contacts to stay safe in the outback.

    There is the potential for motorised vehicles, mountain bike riders and horse riders to be on the same trail and any given time.  Please drive and ride responsibly and use caution when traveling through the park.
