Explorers Caravan Park

Thargomindah, Bulloo Area

Indicative Rate * AU$25 to AU$120

Make your base camp at the Explorers Caravan Park - a two minute walk from town and a one kilometre drive from the airport. Phone and they are happy to collect you.

Take it easy on this holiday and stroll down to the Bulloo River. Put in yabbie pots for a true outback lunch, or take a walk by the river to the Cobb and Co Crossing. 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 - Noccundra, Eromanga, Quilpie and Toompine. See Thargomindah's Hydro Power Plant, Old Hospital, Historic House, Visitor Information Centre and Library and 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 or at the barbecue and camp kitchen.
