The September National Park of the month in Queensland is Thruston National Park. 

Have you been there?  Thrushton is 40km north-east of Bollon and is accessible only in dry weather. A 4WD is recommended. Thrushton National Park is best accessed via the Mitchell-Bollon Road.

The park has few internal roads so the main access is on foot. Do not attempt to cross bore drains in your vehicle. These stopped flowing in 2007 when bores were capped as part of the Great Artesian Basin Sustainability Initiative. Local water is often not suitable for drinking, so take water with you when walking in Thrushton National Park. Treat water obtained from all sources in the national park including taps, creeks and lakes.
