Information

Ourimperee Waterhole is behind the Currawinya Woolshed approximately 46 km from the park entrance from Thargomindah or 25 km from the entrance from Hungerford. The camping area can be reached by 4WD vehicle, off-road camper trailers, off-road caravans and small off-road motorhomes and buses in dry weather only.

The area offers shady areas beside turbid, permanent waterholes along the Paroo River, where you can go swimming, fishing, canoeing, birdwatching and bushwalking. Camp sites are open areas without separately defined sites. Facilities include cold bush showers, flushing toilets nearby at the woolshed. Generators are prohibited but open fires are allowed (except when fire bans apply). Bring your own untreated, clean mill off-cuts for firewood or better still, use a fuel stove. Local water is NOT suitable for drinking. Bring rubbish bags, and take all recyclables and rubbish with you when you leave. Bins are not provided. There is no mobile phone coverage and visitors must self-register and pay before arriving at camp. Pay by phone, online or at any of the many over the counter Qld NP outlets. See website for all details.
