Jundah

Nestled safely above the floodplain of the Thomson River, downstream from Stonehenge, Jundah is the Administration Centre for the Barcoo Shire. Tranquillity is the drawcard, offering a carefree lifestyle abound with country hospitality.

The river so close to town, offers the avid birdwatcher and fisherman the chance to take things easy or if its some physical action your seeking kayak the serene waters. The Settlers' Nature Drive meanders along the river bank before venturing through diverse land types. Plant species are identified along the way.

The Native Well, located 32 kilometres north of Jundah on the Stonehenge road, was a valuable water source for indigenous people in days gone by - marvel at how these wells were manually created.

Magee's Shanty (of Banjo Patterson's Bush Christening Fame) lies about 100 kilometres to the south east of the town. Call in at the information centre to ask for directions.

Unique "Welcome Signs" to the town replicate the historic shop front still to be seen in the main street of Jundah. Each of the signs is linked together by a walking trail and contains different information giving an insight into the early years of the township.

One of the most fascinating areas to visit whilst in the Heart of the Channel Country is the 124,000 hectare Wellford National Park. With its' wide expanses of Spinifex, red sand hills, mulga lands and majestic waterholes the incredible wildlife is in abundance. There are two outstanding drives to take following the Barcoo River, one to the west, the other to the east. Camping is permitted but check with the ranger to acquire your permit and any updates to changes to conditions within the park.

After days exploring or losing the big one that got away, refresh in the swimming pool adjacent to the park - a great way to relax and unwind.
