Welford National Park

Jundah, Barcoo Area

In Welford National Park, wind-blown sand dunes form a dramatic contrast to white-barked ghost gums, golden-green spinifex and delicate wildflowers. The Barcoo River, with its large permanent waterholes, dissects Mitchell grass plains and arid mulga woodlands.

Remnants of Aboriginal heritage and use, including water wells and stone arrangements, are found throughout the park. A rare pise (rammed earth) homestead, built on this former grazing property in 1882, is now staff quarters.

Watch wildlife, including colourful Major Mitchell cockatoos, mallee ringnecks and red-winged parrots. Red and grey kangaroos and wallaroos are a common sight at Welford. Drive the self-guided scenic tracks around the park. Go fishing (size and big limits apply). Enjoy bush camping at Little Boomerang or Trafalgar waterholes, on the Barcoo River. Camping fees apply.
