Diamantina National Park

Take the photo of the year

Keep your camera ready at Janet’s Leap lookout, where panoramic views of a kaleidoscope of nature’s colours inspire photographers from around the globe. In Diamantina National Park, arid lands of sand dunes, grass plains and weathered sandstone ranges merge with the many braided channels of the Diamantina River. Along the 4WD tracks through the park, surprises await experienced visitors—from pioneer settler relics to abundant waterholes, internationally-recognised wetlands full of magnificent birdlife, and majestic desert views.
