Great Basalt Wall National Park

Great Basalt Wall National Park is currently closed for visitors. The 35.200 hectars of land, protected in this Park, are the wildest and the most impassable in Queensland.
The Park is named after massive formations of Toomba basalt deposits. The 13.000 years old basalt deposits at the Great Basalt Wall National Park are the youngest basalt deposits in Queensland. These where created during a huge outbreak of lava.

Great Basalt Wall National Park is divided into two sections. Red Falls, the eastern section, takes up about 4700 hectares. Red Falls is a wonderful oasis, where cool clear water streams down smooth stone walls. The rest - to the west - is the Volcano section. This part of the Park is drought and absolutely unattractive for visitors. Big old fig trees tower among basalt gravel, where they, just as knobble bottle trees, get very little water.

Great Basalt Wall National Park protects reptiles and a wide range of birds. In the evening, when animals go out seeking for food, visitors may observe them.
