Lawn Hill – Boodjamulla National Park


Here at last is our wrap up of three days spent exploring Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park at the end of June!!  After two nights at Gregory Downs we had a leisurely pack up and drove the short 90kms down the road to base ourselves in the campground at Adels Grove and spend the next few days seeing all there was to see at Lawn Hill.

The road out to Adels Grove was really great for the first 50kms or so, right up to the turnoff for the MMG Century Zinc mine.  After that, the last 40km’s were pretty rough going – lots of dust, corrugations and a much narrower road.  The Adels Grove Campground is 10km’s from the Lawn Hill National park itself but we are so glad we camped at Adels as opposed to the National Park campground – it was much shadier and nowhere near as dusty!  The only downside was that there was full phone/internet reception available at the National Park but nothing at all at Adels Grove!  I will do a separate post about Adels Grove next, this one will focus on what we got up to in the Lawn Hill National Park, there are just too many photos and to much to tell you to fit it all in one post.
