Ellery Creek Big Hole is a spectacular waterhole fed by the mighty Ellery Creek. This camping area is the perfect location for a refreshing swim, picnic or camp.
Over the millennia, massive floods have carved out this beautiful waterhole and unlocked some amazing geology.

This spectacular location has been the inspiration for many artists.

Ellery Creek Big Hole is no longer free camping.

Camp sites are worked on first in, first served basis. They are located in the one area (in a loop) and are close to the day visitor car park.

The ground is very hard. It's no a picturesque campsite – but the beauty lies in the Waterhole nearby.
