I spent six weeks driving through some of the most remote parts of Queensland and loved every second of it – almost.
From the water there is a unique view of Boodjamulla National Park, but following the walking trails provides another perspective.
The sparkling emerald water in Lawn Hill Gorge is a refreshing sight after the long drive through the outback.
