海湾(Gulf)地区因河流众多而著名,驱车经过利门国家公园(Limmen National Park),沿途需横跨四条波澜壮阔的大河,之后还需沿着罗珀河(Roper River)走上一小段,该地区的河流之多由此可见一斑。

公园是垂钓者和观鸟者的天堂,一直深受垂钓者的喜爱。 利门国家公园最近才成为观光目的地。 园内景观十分丰富,驱车穿过公园,可饱览各色风景,十分有趣。 沿主路前行,您便能看到林地、河流、冲积平原和死水潭,稍微绕路,更是能入眼更多美景。

蝴蝶泉(Butterfly Springs)是公园内唯一供您放心游泳的场所,距尼森河公路(Nathan River Road)仅五公里,四周绿树成荫,设有宽敞露营地。 南方失落之城(Southern Lost City)距主路仅四公里,城内砂岩尖塔随处可见,十分壮观,其间设有全长两公里的环形步道,供您随心参观。 您可经由长达 28 公里的四轮驱动车道,从尼森河护林站(Nathan River Ranger Station)拿上钥匙,穿过西方失落之城(Western Lost City)大门,进去尽情探索。 罗珀沙洲(Roper Bar)和克劳福德角(Cape Crawford)(两地相距 338 公里)之间不设加油站,请事先加足燃料。
