This Diamantina Lakes 4WD Caravan Camping by Westprint Outback Map and Travel Guides is a 2nd edition map printed in 2010. It is field checked with GPS, includes Lat/Long grid and GPS co-ordinates, detailed roads and tracks, national parks and reserves, heritage and tourist information, and specific 4WD, caravan and camping information.
The Diamantina region is one of the vast plains cut by numerous rivers, creeks and waterholes, suggesting an area of high rainfall and lush pastures. This is not the case as the area is far south of the tropical high-rainfall region. However, when the occasional huge, flooding, tropical rain depression does cover the river catchment, enormous amounts of water spread out over the plains creating the most amazing naturally-irrigated pastures in the world.
Visitors to the Diamantina region will be amazed at the diversity of interest. Landscapes include the Simpson Desert, Diamantina River, Diamantina Gates and vast areas of fertile Mitchell Grass Plains.
Enjoy the search for valuable boulder opal or the elusive Min Min light or just imagine the droving days when thousands of cattle wandered down the Georgina, Diamantina and the Thompson Rivers. There is a story in every town and homestead and on every road and track. Take the time to seek them out and the reward will be great.
