Outback Wilderness Camping

For the true adventure travellers. Sometimes the conditions on the station are conducive to allowing guests to explore some of the "hard-to-reach" places for wilderness camping. We have approximately 40 waterholes, many of which are "secretly known" to only a few. Requires full safety gear and provisions, and can be discussed with the managers a few days before your arrival.

Extra charges apply, and a rescue plan is required.

We have a special sanctuary area around the lagoon (click here to learn more). This means guests must bring their own firewood, or request some to be delivered daily. We do not allow guests to pick up sticks and logs from around the lagoon area, as we do not want to disturb the wilderness and deter wildlife from congregating around the lagoon.
