G`day mate,
The best place for the info you require would be the shire office in Isisford.
There will be water in it, but how much they should tell you.

The Oma Waterhole is about 18 klm S/W of Isisford is one of several permanent waterholes along the Barcoo River which have not been dry for well over 100 years.
At the Oma W/H there are Toilets and hot Showers available and in 2011 it was $2.00 per day (payable at the Council Office in town) to camp there.

Shhhh , don`t tell anyone, it`s a great spot for fishing. LOL

Scrubby.


I don`t know where i`m going but i`m enjoying the journey.

Richard,

I'd suggest the holes should be full, as Barcoo River ran some weeks back.

Appreciate the comment about the blog Richard. A work in progress and think I'll have to retire again to complete it!

If you're going to Diamantina Lakes N/P, then the best campsite is up at the old Mayne Pub. It's a bit out of the way if you are heading west, and lacks any amenities, but has much more "character" than either Hunters Gorge or Gum Holes. Of course there's other good campsites too, but think Parks are still restricting just where you can camp.

The Diamantina had a bit of a flood in it too, so the holes through the gorge should be right up there. Just make sure you have spare fuel when you go there as it's easy to burn up, doing the Warracoota drive.
