All You Need To Know About Sundown Park
Sundown is 250 km (3–4 hrs drive) south-west of Brisbane via Stanthorpe and 70 km north-west of Tenterfield.
The Broadwater camping area at the southern end of the park can be reached by conventional vehicle from Stanthorpe along 76 km of bitumen road via Texas Road (62 km) and the Glenlyon Dam Road (14 km), followed by 4 km of good gravel road (Permanents Road).
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.
