Salvator Rosa is a remote park which lies between Springsure and Tambo. From Springsure, head 114km west along the Dawson Developmental Road to the park turnoff. From Tambo head 42km north then east 64km on the Dawson Developmental Road. Turn right at the park notice and drive south via "Cungelella" to the park boundary.
A self-guided drive takes you to the park's most outstanding features.
