Astrebla Downs National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Extremely isolated park in the far west of Queensland. The closest town to Astrebla Downs is Bedourie there is no road access into the park and it is not open to visitors.

The park protects important habitat for an isolated population of the vulnerable Bilby (Macrotis lagotis), nearby Diamantina National Park also supports a wild population of this endangered native animal. If visitors were allowed into the park it could disrupt their environment and or introduce other animals possibly hastening the reduction in the Bilbies already depleted numbers.

A large part of the Mitchell grassland habitat in the Channel Country is included in the national park.

Very little information could be gathered from the internet regarding the flora and fauna and geology of this park there are no fact sheets available, however information from people who have been into the park suggests it is one huge flat open plain, very dry and treeless with no distinctive landmarks to speak of.
