Exploring one of Australia’s Final Frontiers now more accessible

Lorella Springs Wilderness Park is one Million Acres of Coast on the Gulf of Carpentaria on the Savannah Way, Northern Territory. The owners of 28 years, the Walkers, have now forged a track to probably the most remote piece of coastline in Australia.
The track to the river mouth is quite accessible for 4x4s with camper trailers and boat trailers, with plans to improve access for adventurous caravans as well. To find out more about the improved access and news at Lorella click here to their online newsletter.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
4WD Adventurers: There are hundreds of kilometres of tracks of all grades to satisfy everyone. Some that were originally extreme are now quite easy for beginners.
Keen Fishermen: Whether from a boat or off the banks there are plenty of fish bitting; some of the best fishing in Australia.

Photographers: Some of the best and most interesting scenery and wildlife in Australia.
