About Bladensburg National Park
Bladensburg National Park is a large park protecting Mitchell grass downs and channel country. It is home to a wonderful variety of wildlife, including tiny mammals called dunnarts. Flat-topped mesas and sandstone ranges form a pleasing backdrop to the park’s grassland plains and river flats. The park is important to Traditional Owners, the Koa people, and also contains reminders of the area’s pastoral history.
At the original homestead complex, learn about the early days of station life and the park’s plants and animals. Camping is permitted at Bough Shed Hole beside Surprise Creek, where birdlife is prolific. Camping fees apply. Visit Scrammy Gorge for impressive views. Take the Route of the River Gums drive and visit the stony Top Crossing, once used by horse-drawn wagons. Out there, the night skies are amazing – go stargazing!
