Windorah

With a panorama of giant red sandhills, Windorah is located in the heart of the Channel Country, beside Cooper's Creek. It doesn't get much more 'outback' than here, with its stunning vistas, picturesque ruins and historical sites.

Windorah's history is linked with Isisford for it was the Whitman brothers who established both towns. Originally known as Stony Point, its current name is the Aboriginal word for 'place of large fish'. This relates to Cooper's Creek, which is formed by the junction of the Thomson and Barcoo Rivers just south of Jundah. Cooper Creek at Windorah is a top fishing spot, ideal for birdwatching and enjoying watersports with a waterhole about 19 kilometres in length and up to 10 metres deep. The channels can spread floodwaters up to 100 kilometres wide as they flow towards Lake Eyre.

A scenic 12 kilometre nature drive from town to Cooper's Creek gives a view of the area with all its diversity. Magnificent red sandhills are situated just to the west of town.

Windorah's main industry is cattle grazing, due to the abundance of Mitchell Grass and other herbage that is available especially after floods.
