A piece of Outback Paradise
Our lagoon is one of our favourite places. Our guests keep coming back year after year to rest beside our still waters. It is our favourite place to camp, watch the sunrise, and fry the steaks in the evening.
For the adventurous, there are yabbies. There are deeper parts for swimming. There are canoes. There are walks, and cycling tracks.
This is one of our prime sites for bird-watching and there is a lot of fauna to observe...even the path of a lizard crawling lazily along the sandy shores.
Or the pattern in the mulga wood branches can fascinate photographers.
It is for the reason of the delicate ecosystem of micro-beasts and mini-beasts, that we have designated a sanctuary zone around the lagoon. Please respect this zone, and do not walk into, and damage the bush.
It is important to note that the lagoon is entirely dependent on the rains. Kilcowera is located deep in the Australian Outback, where rain is hard to predict. At any time of year, the lagoon can be full (as seen in the pictures above), or it could be bone dry. Please contact us about the conditions so that you are not disappointed if the lagoon is not full at the time of your visit.
