Travel Destination – Adels Grove Far North Queensland

Lawn Hill Gorge

Adels Grove is a beautiful place adjacent to Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park and close to Riversleigh Fossils (in Far North Queensland not far from the Northern Territory Border). We would highly recommend you visit and stay for a few days – bring your caravan or tent, or book one of the permanent safari style tents or cabins available on site. We decided to leave our caravan at the Burke & Wills Roadhouse and use our camping gear for a few days.

Adels Grove has an excellent restaurant – dinner is a set price, a two course, pre-set meal with the menu posted on the board each morning. Several tours operate from Adels Grove – we took the sunset tour with Les (one of Adels Grove’s guides) which was amazing. We suggest you carry a torch as there were hundreds of small cane toads hopping around at night when we were there. This may have changed since our visit!

Adels Grove is a magic spot for a swim – the water is very green from minerals found in the spring. There are a number of walking tracks around Adels Grove and the National Park – marked trails that enable you to explore the area safely. Canoes are available for hire, allowing you to paddle around the gorge – this is quite easy if you stay in the main (middle) gorge. It is a little more challenging to get to the upper gorge as you will need to carry the canoe up over rocks – but well worth the effort.

This area is excellent for bird watching as well as fishing – we saw our first budgies in the wild at Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park (very exciting). This road is dirt but well maintained, and we saw lots of people heading into Adels Grove towing caravans and camper trailers. You can also fly into Adels Grove and land at an air-strip adjacent to the resort, perfect if you are on a strict time-frame. See more.

Some drivers might not know it, but vehicle weight from towing loads can be a significant factor in the safety and performance of a vehicle. To help keep drivers and passengers safe, Pedders have developed the world-first service to assist customers in understanding vehicle weights.

 

What the RVMAP key tells us about the accredited business
They have committed to building a product that adheres to relevant Australian Standards and Australian Design Rules.
They are committed to adhere to the program’s Code of Practice and Code of Ethics, which go beyond the government rules and regulations.
They have agreed to have their products randomly and regularly reviewed.
They are committed to continually improving standards as an industry as well as their own products.
They have chosen to be part of this industry program as a representation of their commitment to compliance.

As a buyer, the RVMAP Accreditation Key provides a greater level of certainty when you are dealing with manufacturers of caravans, campers and motorhomes. It is by no means a warranty of compliance or a guarantee of quality for your vehicle – these reside with the manufacturer. However, the key does mean that the accredited business has agreed to be held accountable to the RVMAP Accreditation program, which indicates that they are committed to compliance and the highest industry standards.
