This campsite is located in Birdsville Track

An outback icon covering 520 km, this once infamous track was founded in the 1860s for droving cattle from Queensland to the railhead at Marree. Over the years it’s been a legendary mail route and now, with major improvements, it’s a popular tourist trail to the gateway town of Birdsville. In dry weather the route is navigable by conventional vehicles, though travellers need to be well equipped and prepared for long stretches in remote, challenging terrain.
