A campground in Australia’s national park will close temporarily for a week due to rising creek levels caused by the recent rains, according to Queensland’s park alert.
The Gumhole Campground at Diamantina National Park will be temporarily closed from October 13 to 19.
Hunter Gorge Campgrounds remains open. For more information, please check Park Alerts on the Department’s website for updates.
According to the Parks And Forests website of Queensland’s Department of Environment and Science, Diamantina National Park was formerly a pastoral holding and became a national park in 1992.
It sweeps across highly weathered sandstone ranges in the east, down to the floodplains of the Diamantina River and its tributaries, then across Mitchell grass plains to dune-fields reminiscent of deserts further west.
