The 30km driving route around the reserve takes you through spinifex and mulga forest, across a gidgee swamp and over a sand ridge to the mixed floodplain with poplar box and cypress communities along the Warrego River.

There’s plenty of bird-watching to be had, although the best time to visit the Charleville Botanical Reserve is in spring, when the desert myrtle turns the landscape pink.

- 20 and 30 km 4WD and AWD self-guided drive

- Picnic tables are located throughout the reserve

Access
