Has anyone travelled there in the last 2 months that can give us an idea on how bad the drought is and if it is worth going into the park

thanks

Hi DJ
No couple of years ago,
Nice drive, Old stock yards, couple of decent billabongs to camp at, 1 north of & 1 at the gates. quite a bit of info at the ranger station just south of gates in the old station buildings. Photos etc of the flood coming through. Lookout over the gates is worth a look.
We didn't know we were in the Bilby area (near the bottom) as someone had pinched the sign, only saw the other sign as we were leaving. was lots of game just south of the NP & a rat plague.

Do enjoy.
Regards Peter.

Hi DJ,

No problems when dry, just like any station road really. You need to exit north if wet.

Dj,

We camped here for several days in September 2012. We came in from the north after spending several days camped at Carisbrooke Station and Old Cork Homestead Ruins on the Diamantina River. Carisbrooke is well worth spending a few days with some great landscapes and aboriginal paintings. We stayed at Hunters Gorge in the NP and exited to Windorah in the south. The 90km Warracoota Circuit drive is worthwhile doing. Make sure you carry your fly nets otherwise you will be driven insane with the amount of flies. The following link will provide you with some info on our trip:
