Coongie Lakes.

Much publicised by the Leyland brothers back in the day.(who can't remember their jingle hehe)

Formerly part of the Kidman Cattle Empire, thence a regional reserve and since 31 March 2005 as the Coongie Lakes National Park.

Interesting note re the Old Kudriemitchie Out Station.
..From the Toyota Land Cruiser Club archives.... ......
It was during 1994 that a group of TLCC members were travelling in the area and it was discovered that the future of the Out Station looked bleak due to vandal attacks and the ravages of time, it's condition was such that Kidman Pastoral Co. was planning to demolish the building. This prompted some members of the club to approach DEHAA and Kidmans to suggest that the Club restore the building. This was agreed to by all parties and the first working bee was held in 1995.....

When the Lakes are full and the Cooper is up, it is a truly wonderful place..
