Mt Gundabooka (Alt 500m) lies within the magnificent rust coloured cliffs and gorges of the Gundabooka range - a region with great significance to the Ngiyampa people for ceremonial gatherings and culturally significant rock art.

Gundabooka National Park is great for hiking and bird-watching and there is a small camping area accessible by car. A new day-use area, (BBQ's, toilets and picnic area) has opened at Bennett's Gorge.

Bounded to the north by the Darling River, the park features open plains and a beautiful creek-fed gorge. There are three access points to the horseshoe shaped Mt Gundabooka, for walks and picnics. The Mulgowan (Yapa) Art Site Walk is an easy trail along a small rocky bluff to the rock pools and river gums of Mulareenya Creeks.

The Little Mountain trail features vistas of Mt Gundabooka along an interpretive walk through Dry Tank, which is also an ideal camping spot. The Valley of the Eagles walking trail is an easy 1 km hike to the base of Mt Gundabooka.
