Have you visited Lake Bindegolly, east of #Thargomindah and west of #Eulo #QLD ? North of the #Cunnamulla Road (aptly named Adventure Way) is the National Park day use area with walks and a hide for bird watching. Flowers were already blooming when we were there and we saw one couple walking the 9 km grade 4 circuit. Drive further west and on the left you’ll see a sign “Bush Camp” – there are sites everywhere.
No facilities – but water views! In fact there are three separate lakes Bindegolly, Toomaroo and Hutchinson in Lake Bindegolly National Park, this salt and freshwater wetland is home to 195 species of birds, 80 other kinds of animals and 300 species of plants, with the gnarled tree Acacia ammophila, threatened with extinction.
The Parks website says the diverse 14,000ha park has samphire flats, claypans, sand dunes, hard and soft red mulga country, gidgee woodlands, and Eremophila shrublands and it is one of the most important wetland systems in south-west Queensland. Sites were everywhere, and well off the road. It would be a very peaceful place to stop for a couple of nights. The site is 48 hours only, pets are allowed in the free bush camp (not in the park), fires are allowed and access is weather dependent. No boating or fishing.
