The property consists of approximately one thousand acres, mostly comprising hilly terrain and rocky gullies, with a well grassed area for camping grounds beside a flowing creek. This beautiful camping ground is just a short drive to the Main Range National Park, Goomburra Section with exciting views from the lookouts.
 
Open since April 2004, Janowen Hills has established approximately eighty 4WD tracks. Tracks are rated from easy, medium, difficult and extreme.

Location

Sundown Road,

Sundown National Park

Journey along back roads to the spectacular wilderness of Sundown National Park on the Queensland–New South Wales border. With its dramatic landscape of sheer-sided gorges, tree-lined ridges and peaks rising over 1000m above the Severn River, discover for yourself the park’s wild isolation.

Camp on a river flat and throw in a line to see if you can catch a yellow-belly or eel-tailed catfish. Wander to Permanent Waterhole for a refreshing dip, or climb the Western circuit and gaze out across the horizon.

Witness rust-red granite cliffs at Red Rock Gorge lookout track, with peregrine falcons flying overhead. Walk among box, ironbark and cypress trees in beautiful eucalypt woodland, and picturesque river red gums and river oaks growing along the water.

Challenge yourself with a half-day adventure, following the creek from Burrows Waterhole to Rats Castle or into Ooline Creek. Keep watch for brush-tailed rock-wallabies hiding among rocks near Nundubbermere Falls. Investigate centuries-old pastoral relics and abandoned mines where tin, copper and arsenic were unearthed from the 1870s.

Bring your binoculars—more than 150 bird species are found in the park, including red-capped robins, spiny-cheeked and striped honeyeaters, red-winged and turquoise parrots and azure kingfishers.
