Blackdown Tablelands, QLD

This breathtaking national park is just off the Capricorn Highway, about 170km inland from Rockhampton. With hikes for a range of fitness levels, gorgeous lookouts, a waterfall to swim under and Ghungalu art work on rock faces, it's absolutely worth a trip. And, unlike lots of the other incredible places in Queensland, you don’t need a 4x4 to enjoy it!

Capricorn Highway, QLD

The Capricorn Highway - formerly Australia's Route 66 until it was renamed as the far less exciting A4 in the early 2000s - is your route inland to some of Queensland's nicest outback towns, stunning scenery, and national parks.

Blackwater, QLD

Around 8,000 people live in this Central Queensland town. Best know for its mining - both historical and current - it's an interesting stop along the Capricorn Highway and a great place to stay if you're heading up to the Blackdown Tableland National Park.
