Information

This is a magnificent campsite on the banks of a bore-fed billabong that is part of the Frome River. The campsite is located on Muloorina Station, which is a working cattle station, but payment is by donation to the RFDS - honesty box on location. Camping is totally self-sufficient and you will need to bring your own water, food, and take your rubbish out with you. Cooking is restricted to gas stoves only. No campfires.

There is no requirement to pre-book camp sites though the property does experience an influx of campers during peak times. The eastern (far) side of the waterhole are hot pools. They are fairly hot and silty bottom. Swim across the waterhole, laze in the hot pool, cool off on the swim back.

The billabong is an oasis filled with green reeds that attracts an array of wonderful birdlife including brolgas, brown kites, whistling kites, great egrets, corellas, galahs, budgies, swifts, diamond doves, sacred kingfisher, white-breasted woodswallow, babblers, honeyeaters, eurasian coot, pacific black duck, black-fronted dotterel, zebra finch, black-face cuckoo-shrike, welcome swallow, crested pigeon, magpies, and herons. There is a good bird habitat surrounding the waterhole with plenty of scrub, mature trees and reed beds. A permanent bird hide is located on the homestead side of the waterhole.

Most travellers will use this as a base-camp for the day trip out to Level Post Bay on Lake Eyre North. The drive is 51km along PAR No. 2 and is recommended for 4WD only although depending on conditions might be accessible by 2WD. For more information see Mulooorina to Level Post Bay Track -SA
