Simpson Desert National Park

In the drought heart of Australia Simpson Desert National Park is the biggest and the youngest desert with sand dunes. It is the biggest desert National Park in Queensland.
Sand dunes drift north-west to south-southeast. Between sand dunes lie gibber-ironstone flats, claypans, saltpans and sand plains.

Simpson Desert National Park is home for more than 180 bird species.

Simpson Desert National Park may be self-explored, but only by experienced adventurers. Ten sites are signposted along the track between the eastern park boundary and Poeppel’s Corner. For travelers it is a good opportunity to plan their time and trip independently. Simpson Desert National Park should be explored only by car; walking tours are not recommended.

Visitors should consider visiting another park or, if needed, hire a professional guide, if they want to discover new breeds of animals and new plants that don’t exist in other parks. In any case, tourists should explore Simpson Desert National Park between April and October (Australian winter), and be well prepared for the tour. Then a lot of wonderful things may be safely explored in this desert National Park.
