Bladensburg National Park conserves 84,900ha of Mitchell Grass Downs and Channel Country, including unique birdlife, plants and animals. Impressive flat-topped plateaus and residual sandstone ranges provide a scenic backdrop to vast grassland plains and river flats, river red gums and rocky scarp.
Bladensburg National Park encompasses areas of important cultural heritage. The park is the traditional country of the Koa people, the Maiawali and Karuwali people also have strong associations with this landscape.
Pastoralists established a large station at Bladensburg—the homestead has been restored and is used as an information centre and ranger office. There are other sites within the park which offer reminders of the park’s early pastoral history.
