If in school hols, Dalhousie will be chockers, but is the place to relax in the thermal spring. Purnie is quieter but no swimming. Fuel is Birdsville, Mt.Dare, Oodna. Best water at Birdsville.

A place called Eringa Waterhole. Great place to camp with h2o, north west of Dalhousie.

Take your drinking water with you from home or buy purified or spring water in 4 litre bottles/casks. It is not a huge expense and you will be able to drink it, desert bore water is mostly drinkable but tastes like **** Can not even make good cup of tea with it. Dalhousie sring water is millions of years old and prehistoric little fish fornicate in it !
