Explorers Caravan Park

Thargomindah, Bulloo Area

Indicative Rate * AU$25 to AU$115

Make your base camp here at the Explorers Caravan Park in Thargomindah, just a two minute walk from town. Take it easy on this holiday and relax, stroll down to the Bulloo River, put in yabbie pots for a true outback lunch, or take a walk around the river to the Cobb and Co Crossing to see the wonderful bird life here. Perhaps have a few days' break from the roads and just watch the birds visiting the native shrubs in the park.

About 40 kilometres from Thargomindah on the bitumen road eastwards takes you to Lake Bindegolly National Park where you can amaze at the abundance of birds and stroll along the walks around the Lake.

Take a day trip along the all bitumen roads to see the historic hotels around - Noccundra, Eromanga, Quilpie and Toompine. Call in to see Thargomindah's Hydro Power Plant, the Old Hospital, Historic House, Visitor Information Centre and Library and while you are there check out the weather for a visit to the Burke and Wills "Dig Tree".

Come back each day and meet up with old and new friends and recount your adventure around the campfire, barbecue and camp kitchen.
