From Tenterfield, travel north 5 km along the New England Highway then west along the Bruxner Highway 52 km to Mingoola. Turn right and travel 12 km to the park turnoff.
A small general store at Glenlyon Dam has the only food and fuel supplies after leaving the New England Highway.
From Ballandean, travel the 16 km of gravel via Curr Road and Sundown Road to the park’s eastern boundary (and 4WD entrance). A rough 4WD track leads 20 km to camp sites along the Severn River. The drive takes about 2 hrs. Towing trailers or campers is not recommended due to the rough, steep and narrow road.
To reach Nundubbermere Falls travel 8 km along the Texas Road from Stanthorpe, then 20 km along Nundubbermere Road and then a further 4 km along Falls Road to the park entrance.

Please note: GPS Coordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
