Any help appreciated - cheers.

Louth has free camp sites on both sides of the bridge. As for the showers they do ask for a gold coin donation to the RFDS payable at Shindys Inn, nice folk and cold beer, who could ask for more?

I agree with Gundabooka as an alternative camp.

Colin.

There is also a free camping area on the eastern side od the river at Louth, ask at the pub and they will tell you.
Only facilities are across from Shindys Inn but a donation to RFDS is prefered.

Why not drive through Gundabooka NP and camp in there.

Then, take the short drive and then walk to Yappa Rock to see the art work

You may not come back to this area. Take it all in while you can.

On Patrol & Toni + Slave yes you are right an RFDS donation
Its a few years since I've been so am going back in August after this rain it should be quite different to my last trip
Have been visiting that area since I was about 9/10 ( near on 50 years ) never get sick of it every time is different I've seen a lot of changes over that time -some not so good - with a bit of support from tourism maybe these little places will survive
