Red Sandhills

Windorah, Barcoo Area

The Red Sandhills ten kilometres west of Windorah on the Birdsville Road are the reddest that you will find anywhere. They may not be very high, but they are worth stopping to admire, especially for photographers. The sandhills continually change colours throughout the day. The best time to see them is at sunset. It's an ideal place to have a drink or two and watch the sun go down and the moon come up at the same time. Along with the sounds of silence, the view and your own company - what better way to take away the stress.

The children will also use up their excess energy running up and sliding down the sandhills. And don't worry, the red sand brushes off.
