Have you visited Millstream Chichester National Park?

Palm Pool in Millstream Chichester National Park will soon have included 25 glamping-style safari tents, caravan and camping sites, as well as a restaurant. The new ecotourism accommodation with approval for a lease was given to the Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation.

Covering an area of approximately 200,000 hectares around the Fortescue River, this National Park is set amongst a stunning natural landscape of ancient volcanic ranges, tablelands, escarpments and water systems.

Palm Pool is the perfect destination for campers and adventure travellers with water year-round; visitors can swim, canoe, kayak or enjoy one of the several walk trails around the site.

It is also a popular destination for nature enthusiasts with more than 120 species of bird, 30 species of mammal, 150 species of reptile and 500 species of plants found in the park.

The opportunity for an ecotourism development at Palm Pool was co-ordinated by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.

The McGowan Government’s decision to upgrade and seal the Karratha-Tom Price Road will improve access to Millstream Chichester National Park and greatly improve the viability of the proposed development with park visitation to increase.

The WA Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC), supported by Tourism Western Australia, will market this new Aboriginal tourism offering along with others in the region..

This development is part of the State Government’s Two Year Action Plan for Nature-Based Tourism in Western Australia initiative.

Pilbara MLA Kevin Michel said the ecotourism project would contribute to the local economy and also provide meaningful jobs, further empowering the indigenous community.

Camps Australia Wide will keep you posted once camping is available at this new site.
