Outback Queensland’s eastern Sandstone Wonders region has many natural attractions including gorges, rivers and National Parks such as the Glebe Weir and Expedition National Park. Visit Lake Murphy, Kroombit Tops and Mt. Scoria Conservation Parks, or relax at Isla and Cania Gorges.
The Dawson River and Callide Dam provide many opportunities for fishing and water sports. The region can also provide many adventures for the 4WD enthusiast.
Many towns in the area have a rich history which has been well documented photographically and can be explored in historical villages and museums.
Meanwhile in the #outbackqueensland Eastern Region
