Lorella Springs, Northern Territory closure: Popular wilderness park closes public access


A treasured Northern Territory tourist destination has been forced to shut access for drive-by tourists after more than two decades, with its owner blaming bureaucracy and red tape for making it ‘impossible’ to keep running.

Lorella Springs Wilderness Park, a remote property in the Gulf of Carpentaria, is home to idyllic waterfalls and swimming holes.

But the popular spot will not be opening in 2023 unless visitors are in a pre-booked tour group.

The one-million-acre cattle station has been owned and maintained by the Walker family since they settled in the region in the mid-1980s.

On January 13, owner Rhett Walker said he was closing Lorella Springs ‘with a heavy heart, a lot of emotion and a bit of fear’.

‘My dream has unravelled,’ he said.
