$12 a night per person but a pay for 3 stay 4 available. Last report still accurate but we had the camp tea this time $15 a head and it was OK. Wooramel service station approx 3 Ks away has a bakery with good pies and pasties if the mood desires BUT depending on who is working that day or passing trade, you may not get what you want. LPG available there but if the right person is not there, then they cannot fill cylinders. We will go again.

Just one night stay due to no power available but beautiful spot. Great people running station and caravan park only going for just over a year. Lots of fabulous breeding birds and so quiet and peaceful. Four toilets and two showers with hot water pumped from the naturally warm water bore. They have more plans to expand. Highly recommend this stop over about 120 kms short of Carnarvon. Would do it again!

This is a great place for an overnighter and has the x factor -majestic gums, dry river bed, birds, camp fires and fantastic ambience soaking in the hot artesian bore pools at sunset drinks with other campers.
