* <see name="Mirima National Park" alt="Hidden Valley" address="Barringtonia Avenue" directions="a 10 minute walk from town " phone="" url="" hours="" price="$10 per car" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Though the park itself is huge, a small area close to town has been developed with walkways, information boards and a viewing platform. Often described as the mini Bungle-Bungles by marketing types in tourist brochures, it offers more diversity than just striped domes. It’s worth visiting at sunrise or sunset when the orange colour of the rock is at its most intense. An entry fee is payable into an often out of order ticket machine, but can be avoided by either walking in from town or parking out front (next to the cemetery) and walking the 500m into the park.</see>

* <see name="Sleeping Buddha/Elephant Rock" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Named ''Carlton Ridge'' on maps, but fancifully called the Sleeping Buddha by locals, this meandering outcrop is said to resemble a slumbering Buddha or an elephant depending on your viewpoint. Kelly's Knob lookout or Celebrity Tree Park are ideal spots for a good view of the Buddha, and the elephant with its trunk dipped into the water is best seen from Packsaddle Rd or a boat on the river.</see>
