Porcupine Gorge National Park

National Park in Hughenden

Porcupine Gorge National Park is an oasis in the dry country 70km (by sealed road) north of Hughenden. The best spot is Pyramid Lookout; you can camp here (sites per person/family $6.55/26.20), and it’s an easy 30-minute walk into the gorge. Hughenden's visitor information centre has a route outlining points of interest, including some Indigenous landmarks, between the town and the park.
