Before you plan your adventure to Boodjamulla National Park, be sure to check these links to make your visit to Boodjamulla memorable for the right reasons.
Before you leave home:
Make sure you have packed ample fresh water and food in case of delays caused by bad weather, flat tyres or breakdowns
Pack a minimum of 2 spare tyres in good condition
Make sure someone knows your destination and route and never leave your vehicle if it breaks down
Travel with a UHF radio (channels 1 and 6 are local repeaters), or satellite phone
Check with your service provider where mobile phone reception is available. Depending on your provider, some coverage may be available at sites within the national park.
Wear sunscreen, particularly when walking and canoeing, as the sun’s reflection over the water can cause sunburn
Keep to the walking tracks at all times, take note of safety signs, walking distances, return times and track grades
Rest often in the shade as heat exhaustion can affect even the fit and experienced
Stay clear of cliff edges and steep rock faces and take care on uneven slippery track surfaces, especially when wet
Carry plenty of drinking water to avoid dehydration— drinking water straight from Lawn Hill Creek can make you very thirsty because of the high levels of calcium carbonate
Freshwater crocodiles live in the park and are often seen in Lawn Hill Creek. They can become aggressive if disturbed and can cause injury. Do not approach or interfere with these animals and take care if swimming
