Driving Directions

Proceed to waypoint, 45km south of Jundah on the Junday Quilpie Road. Turn west onto Haughton Vale-Retreat Road (dirt road) and continue for 8km to GPS -25.1590, 143.1451. Turn left and continue for a further 2km to campsite on the north side of the Barcoo River. Following signage.

Little Boomerang Waterhole Camping Area is strictly for experience and self-sufficient campers equipped with 4WD. It lies within the Welford National Park on the bank of the Barcoo River.
Welford is a land of contrasts—wide coolibah-lined waters and grey alluvial channels of the Barcoo River slice a brown and green swathe through Mitchell grass plains and arid mulga woodlands. Golden-green spinifex and white-barked ghost gums grow atop a vivid backdrop of red sand dunes.

Majestic river red gums line the Barcoo River, the southern boundary of the 124,000 ha park. Varied habitats create vital refuges for wildlife, including rare yellow-footed rock-wallabies and mulga parrots.
