Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park encompasses Lawn Hill Gorge and the Riversleigh World Heritage Site, part of the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites (Riversleigh/Naracoorte) World Heritage Area. The emerald waters and lush vegetation of Lawn Hill Gorge form a beautiful oasis in the outback, attracting abundant wildlife and offering exceptional views, walks, canoeing and cultural sites. The Riversleigh fossil deposits are among the richest and most extensive in the world, with some fossils dating back 25 million years. These fossils have been superbly preserved in limestone outcrops.
