4WD driving on Lorella Springs Station, a huge one-million acres, surrounded on two sides with national park, one side with Aboriginal land, and backing out onto the Gulf of Carpentaria… There are so many destinations to see and things to do on this beautiful property.
With the Costello, Tawallah and Yiyinti ranges vastly scattering across Lorella’s 4,000 square kilometres this makes for a huge contrast in country variation – from beautiful escarpment ranges through to the coastal wetlands and salt flats.
4WD driving on Lorella will be putting you to the test, and we suggest you come prepared with spare tyres, tools for breakdowns, GPS or compass, water and fuel, and always let someone know which direction you are going and when we can expect to see you back.
A permit will be required included in your camping fee which will allow you to travel across our property. This will be given to you to complete when you first arrive at Lorella, and we will also give you maps and friendly advice and directions.
Please be aware of the following rules regarding 4WD driving on Lorella which you will be asked to acknowledge and sign when you check in. See all the rules in our Terms and Risk Assessment.
