Expedition National Park


Today we explore a region that we’ve been looking forward to for a long time. The Robinson Gorge Section of Expedition National Park about 500ks North West of Brisbane. Frank Smallwood is our guide to one of the lesser-known but perhaps most beautiful parts of our State. They refer to this region as The Sandstone Wonders and for good reason. Today we’re out of the cars and on the hoof, for a close-up and personal look at some amazing country. Flagstaff Lookout is our first port of call.


But the Main event is Expedition National Park and we roll into this remote camping region in the late afternoon and set up camp have dinner and an early night in preparation for the day ahead. The road less travelled can be a rewarding experience we are in the Robinson Gorge section of Expedition National Park. Extremely remote and eerily quiet, a long way from…anywhere.

View at Expedition National Park

The walk into the Gorge is about three kilometres of flat well-signed track. Our first look at the gorge from the lookout left me in no doubt the trip is definitely worth the effort. From here we backtrack slightly and head down into the Gorge itself to feel the enormity of the Sandstone cliffs around us. My mate Frank is a big fan of this place and is in his element. Expedition National Park is a rare gem in an area of the country that definitely demands some extra attention, put it on your list!

Campsite in Expedition Range National Park

There are so many out of the way places filled with natural beauty that I urge you to get out of your comfort zone and not go back to the same old places, rather head to The Banana Shire. Head to the OQTA website for all the info on Expedition National Park and the Sandstone Wonders region.

ARB has all the aftermarket gear to get you into and out of trouble with minimal fuss. And for the Boots check out Ariats Range at your local Ariat stockist.
