Salvator Rosa is definitely worth a visit, easy drive in from Tambo on the Dawson Dev Rd will be very cold in Winter. Our dishes left for a clean next morning were in frozen tub of water, hahahaha
It is were the Nagoa River starts which feeds the Fairbairn Dam.

We came up through there last year.
After spending a couple of days at Hunters Gorge in the Diamantina NP, we headed north vis Old Cork Station (OK camp), Lark Quarry (camped in the mulga just north of Lark Quarry), Bladensberg NP - (looked OK), Winton, Longreach (caravan park near Stockmans Hall of Fame), then followed the Thompson River south via Lochern National Park (we had a magic campsite on the river and a good drive around the park), Welford NP - didn't camp there but there we some good sites on the river), Windorah, Haddons Cnr, Innamincka etc.....

Lark Quarry to Windorah is a nice drive. Nothing much at Opalton unless you want to do some noodling but the camp area does have toilets. The flies nearly carried us away at the Diamantina NP.

Hi.

I'd certainly recommend Lochern and Welford National Parks. Great camping spots beside water, isolation, interesting pastoral history, geography etc.

Have fun.
