Leichhardt Falls

The Leichhardt River catchment is located in north west Queensland and covers an area of approximately 33,000 sq. km. The river rises in the Selwyn Ranges, 40 kilometres southeast of Mount Isa. The cliffs adjacent to the Falls offer sweeping views across and along the river. Like the river, the falls are named for explorer Ludwig Leichhardt. The falls are not renowned for their height, but for their stepped nature and their breadth.

The Savannah Way crosses the Leichhardt River as a concrete causeway nearby. Camping sites on both banks high up on the cliffs. Large sand dunes deposited after each wet season need to be bulldozed away to open the road to traffic.

Location: near Floraville, 70 km south of Burketown
