About Tambo’ s Wilderness Way Self Drive Route
Travel Tambo’s Wilderness Way, a self-drive tour through an area of rugged beauty, known as the ‘Rooftop of Queensland’. The tour traverses a landscape of deep gorges and vast cliff lines. Enjoy vistas of tangled ranges where the wind and rain have created massive sandstone formations which contrast starkly with the grey-green bush. The area provides habitat for some unique flora. You can camp or go bushwalking in Salvator Rosa National Park and discover the trickling clear water of Mitchell Springs.
Tambo’s Wilderness Way is a 270 kilometres loop and you can take one to two days to complete, depending on the adventure you are after. The road is accessible by conventional vehicles, however, a four wheel drive is recommended. The road may become impassable in the wet, check accessibility and road conditions at the Tambo Visitor Information Centre prior to leaving and it is best to carry sufficient water and fuel.
