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.

Discover the ancient connections the local Aboriginal people have with this land, including water wells and stone arrangements, throughout the park. A rare pise (rammed earth) homestead, built on this former grazing property in 1882, is listed on the National Trust.

Explore the park on the self-guided scenic drives. Watch wildlife, including colourful Major Mitchell cockatoos, mallee ringnecks and red-winged parrots. Take in the views over the park from Sawyers Lookout and try your luck landing a fish for dinner. Set up your tent or park your camper trailer in she shade of red river gums on the Barcoo River.
