Has anyone been to the Longreach Water hole near Elliott NT. this year? Just wondering if we can take the van in.

We spoke to someone who took their van in, in April and looking at WikiCamps people are still heading in there with vans.

Cheers

We just had a glorious week there from 2/7/14. Truly magnificent with 100s of birds. It wasn't full but most of the level sites were taken by early afternoon. There is a shortage of firewood around the camping sites but if you don't mind a little drive there is alot to be found along the tracks. The pit toilets were very clean with the rubbish bins emptied daily. The road was ok with only a few spots of corrugations. Highly recommend this site.

We went in to this waterhole about 4 weeks ago, its about 10ks in on dirt, a little sandy in spots but no problem for the BT. It is a magnificent waterhole, thousands of birds including pelicans that are acitive all night. Top spot.

Could you confirm that there is still plenty of water in the waterhole
as we intend to head that way shortly.

Many thanks

Bob, Yes there was plenty of water in the waterhole. Plenty of birdlife, the pelicans put on a fantastic display during the day.

Thanks Brian
We were there late in the season last year and by the time we left the water was getting down and very little birdlife around.
Looks far more promising by the sounds of it.

Thanks

Bob

We spent two night there great spot. The entrance to longreach water hole is now signposted and just over the grid north of Elliott. Plenty of water lots of water birds. School holidays are now on so expect water skiers they uses this water hole. There is a pit toilet bring your own paper. Rubbish bins are provided.
Lots and lots of insects at night close to water.
