Several Queensland National Parks

After leaving the Gem Fields we decided to continue our trek inland which brought us through Winton to Bladensburg National Park through Hughenden to Porcupine Gorge National Park and then to the lava tubes at Undara National Park.

Bladensburg National Park felt a bit like landing on the moon.  It was a truly beautiful location unlike another we have previously visited.  It was about a 12km journey into the park.  It is an old shearing station that became national park many years ago.  One of the most remarkable aspects of it was that each section looked different as we moved through the park.

We then moved to Porcupine Gorge National park, which Jay blogged about here.

The road from Porcupine Gorge National Park to Undara was particularly beautiful and warranted a few pictures on their own.
