Caranbirini Conservation Reserve

Caranbirini is located 46km south of Borroloola on the western edge of the Bukulara Range, just off the Carpentaria Highway. It incorporates sandstone escarpments, semi-permanent waterholes and surrounding riverine vegetation and areas of open woodland. There are short walks that allow you to explore the area. Caranbirini is easily accessible and well worth a look.

Lorella Springs

Lorella Springs is a family owned 1 million acre waterfront wilderness sanctuary with bird filled lakes, rivers, waterfalls, thermal springs, towering glittering crystalline escarpments and unspoilt beaches. Definitely worth a visit, it is 140km Nth West from Borroloola. Turn right off the Savannah Way (Limmen NP Rd-Roper Bar Rd). This is the road heading northwards to Roper Bar and Mataranka.

Poppy's Pool

These thermal pools are situated 70km from Cape Crawford on Bauhinia Downs Station, traditional land of the Gundanji people. The hot spring water rises under pressure from a large aquifer system 5-7km's deep in the earths crust. It emerges to the surface through permeable faulted sandstone rock of the Roper Group, where it cools as it moves downstream and mixes with the water from the cool spring.
