Just had an interesting few days with Toni and Greg on Kilcowera Station, south of Thargomindah.

Mine hosts were most welcoming and helpful and supplied us with a mine of information about the station and things to do and see. We were settled in quite quickly, with power and the knowledge of how to get a hot shower!

We took the tours, a short one down to a lagoon which had separate, discrete campsites with a formed campfire. Lots of shade for the warmer months.

Then off a round a loop to catch the waterholes and try to get a glimpse of the birdlife that abounds in this area. The herons and ducks at the Red Hole flew off when they saw us creeping through the bush!

The second sightseeing loop was 60 km long on well made tracks, up and over a stony ridge with 360* views over the nearby Currawinya National Park and Lake Wyara. Lots of interesting history snippets have been provided of life when Kidman owned the station.

If you are looking for a restful stay in the outback, you would be hard pressed to find one better then Kilcowera.

No, i am not a relative or a shareholder in the property..... just a happy camper.

Thanks Toni and Greg,

Hey Bill,
Couldn't agree more with what you have said above, we were there for four nights in July last year, met Greg, but Toni was away.
We camped at the Lagoon at camp site "Egret" and didn't want to leave.
Cheers.

Sounds a great place. Thanks for sharing the info. Do you know if there is water in the lake/s? Megan

Did I mention the grassy campsite near the showers?

Lake Wyara has water but greatly reduced. You can only get so close to the lake as it is a NP. A walking trail is there for you to get closer.

The lagoon is OK now and so are the waterholes. Could do with some rain.

Then, again, we all could.
