The Lonesome section joins the Beilba section of the Expedition National Park to the north-west which are both a part of the Central Queensland Sandstone belt.
Lonesome is spectacular with it’s sandstone gorges and cliffs and has the Dawson River running through the middle of it. The Lonesome Lookout offers fabulous views of Arcadia Valley and the Dawson River Valley. On the banks of the Dawson River 1 km off the bitumen is a campsite. Further down the river The Candlesticks can be viewed to the south. The Candlesticks are sandstone silhouettes which rise above the river valley. Further down the river is a historical stockmen’s hut which is still in it’s original state from 90 years ago.
Lonesome was a cattle station prior to becoming a National Park, evidence such as cattle yards, dams and fences are still there.
Ensure you are self contained if you plan on camping as there are no facilities at the park. At the Lonesome Lookout there is a shelter shed and picnic table.
Enjoy the scenery of the rugged ranges for your bush experience!
