Hi All

Planning a trip in July to include Quilpie - Thargomindah - Currawinya National Park via Hungerford and then to Eulo. Any tips appreciated.

I recently contacted ranger at Currawinya and he stated that road direct from Thargomindah to Currawinya / Hungerford is the best option - opinions please.

Many thanks .....

Noel Where are you coming from? There may be a lot more interesting places to see on the way (particularly Quilpie area)
Is it to be a "round trip" sort of thing?

Hi Kesh

This will be a loop in part of a larger trip. This region of the trip will include Charleville - Quilpie - Thargomindah - Currawinya NP via Hungerford - Eulo.

Unfortunately on this occasion, it's more of a driving holiday and only have 4 / 5 days from the time we leave Charleville and have to be back in St George. We're certainly keen to hear about places of interest. If we have to bypass Currawinya on this occasion, so be it but it sound interesting from what I have read about the location.

Thanks ...

Noel. My thought is that if you were coming into Quilpie from Charleville a great camp spot is Lake Houdraman at Quilpie, then up the Windorah road to Thylungra, left there across to the Kyabra waterholes for another beaut camp then straight down the road to Eromanga and direct route to Thargominda. Plenty to see on the trip
Whichever way, sure you will enjoy it.

Thanks to all who have replied.

Kesh, when you suggested "direct to Thargomindah", did you mean "direct' heading SSE or head South West via the Cooper Dev Road?

Sorry Noel, I could have been more precise. By direct, I meant the SSW Cooper Dev. road, via Noccundra turnoff then due E.
There is a more direct route through Mt. Margaret, Tobermory but you need to know a bit about it. Goes past Santos oil field etc. with restricted access.
The othe way is back to Quilpie, then Toompine (where they have very nicely stuffed an original outback pub) There is a river road from there, but need to ask about it. Otherwise straight on to Thargo. If that is not so important, about 35km. past Toompine is the Eulo road from where you can make a 25km. diversion to the Yowah opal field.
When at Eulo, take a look at the mud springs. Ask at the date farm for directions. You can catch a feed of yellowbelly in the Paroo there also.
