This campsite is located in Idalia National Park

Set in the Gowan Range in central western Qld, Idalia National Park is a dry, remote wilderness. Although the park encompasses the headwaters of the Bulloo River and the tributaries of the Barcoo River, the waterways have wide, sandy beds that are usually dry, except following big rains. There are a number of pastoral relics, including Old Idalia, the site of an abandoned musterer’s hut and stockyards. Visitors must be self-reliant. Advance bookings are recommended for camping.
