Homestead Creek camping area
Homestead Creek offers all the facilities you need, including gas/electric BBQs and hot showers. The nearby walk up Homestead Creek passes by some good rock-art sites, and on to the ridge top for views over a rugged, red rock landscape dotted with cypress pines. A short drive leads to the start of the Mutawintji Gorge Walk, where you first cross open range land, then enter a picturesque gorge that ends at a shady rockpool. No bookings are taken and there’s no fuel or firewood, so bring your own. There’s bore water, but it’s best boiled before drinking. Homestead Creek is 130 km north-east of Broken Hill, via the Silver City Hwy then the Broken Hill–White Cliffs Rd. Note: check road conditions beforehand as roads can be closed in wet weather.

Tranquil valleys and rugged gorges cut through the craggy Bynguano Range, the dominant landform in Mutawintji National Park. On the fringe of the Central Arid Zone, this is a landscape of red dirt and woodlands, precious creeks and waterholes, and some of the finest Aboriginal rock-art galleries in the country at Mutawintji Historic Site; contact the Broken Hill visitor centre for tour details.
