Hi all,
News from the guys at Kingfisher Camp, it is now open, no supplies yet so will have to take everything you need but it is finally open, for fuel and supplies please check surrounding locations BEFORE leaving as some are CASH ONLY and some are still limited hours ........
From ....... Lawn Hill Gorge
From the gorge, travel 10km to Adel's Grove. Drive a further 14.6km towards Gregory Downs and you'll come to a junction. Turn left at the 'Discover Bowthorn & Kingfisher' sign and 1km later you'll pass the Lawn Hill Station cattleyards. Just keep following the 'KFC' signs for 92km, until you pass Bowthorn Station Homestead and then it's a further 33km to Kingfisher Camp.

From Savannah Way....
42Kls in, road has been cleared by a dozer but not graded, can get in a 4wd with off road van

When I was in the Army we built community housing there. For Doomadgee (2006) I was mainly based in Mt Isa purchasing stores so only had quick visits there.

The Yarralin/Lingarra communities (2001) were great ones to work with, I spent most of my time at Lingarra (I built the new water tower with one local as an assistant), loved working there. I want to go back soon to see how they are going.

Cheers Kev

Lingarra ....... if you dream of the PERFECT spot to retire in that would be it, awsome river with big pools of water full of big barra, nice shady trees, high and dry in the big wets, fresh water out of the ground, hills and plains ....... just perfect...
So would it have been Riley n the Campbell clan, we managed the store at Yarralin and helped set up Pigeon Hole store ....
