Cullyamurra Waterhole - Innamincka Regional Reserve

Cullymurra Waterhole is a beautiful camping and fishing spot on Cooper Creek in the far north-east of the state, and has a history that goes back far longer than Burke and Wills’ famously ill-fated expedition that ended with their deaths just near here. For thousands of years, Cooper Creek was a major Aboriginal travel route, with a variety of goods traded along its length, such as the narcotic pituri plant. At the end of the waterhole, the rocks are covered in abundant rock carvings from this era, and it is worth exploring them to get a glimpse into the lives of people who lived so capably in this desert region.
