Camping is permitted in the national park only within 500 m either side of the QAA Line. Munga-Thirri is extremely remote: visitors must take a 2-way radio, spare vehicle parts, fuel and a week’s worth of food and water in case of emergency. Only very experienced, self-sufficient visitors should explore the Simpson Desert. The park boundary is about 75 km west of Birdsville.

This campsite is located in Munga-Thirri National Park

The largest national park in Qld, Munga-Thirri National Park is part of the remote and unforgiving Simpson Desert, a destination for experienced outback adventurers only. Covering the intersecting borders of 3 states – Augustus Poeppel in 1884 established the corner point now known as Poeppel Corner – the park is characterised by huge sand dunes up to 50 m high, which run parallel to each other, around 1 km apart, and extend for up to 200 km. The park is closed 1 Dec–15 Mar annually due to high temperatures. Note: visitors must keep to the QAA Line. Advance bookings are required for camping.
