The strategy has been prepared to guide the establishment of Toorale as an attractive destination for visitors. At the same time, facilities at Gundabooka will be enhanced to ensure that visitors to these parks, and to the region, have a rewarding outback experience.

These parks contain diverse and spectacular landscapes extending from the rocky red ranges - with Mt Gundabooka as the centrepiece - across to the floodplains and wetlands of both the Darling and Warrego Rivers.

The long and ongoing connection of Aboriginal people to these places provides a tapestry of stories to be shared. Both parks have a fascinating and significant history extending from the early settlement days to the present.
