Drovers Camp Shed / Camooweal Information Centre
Just 1km from the centre of town, this is a must do while in Camooweal.
Take a FREE guided tour through the interpretive and historical displays
and wonderful artwork and browse through the impressive range of
Australiana books. See the volunteers at the information centre
for up-to-date information on roads and events in the North West Qld
Region and enjoy a rest break at the facilities.
Camooweal Caves National Park
The Camooweal Caves National Park is located 24km south of Camooweal on
the Urandangi Road. There is a camping ground on "Gum waterhole" with
covered picnic setting, water tank and eco friendly toilets. As this is
the only waterhole is the only water in the area, many birds and other
wildlife visit, making it another great birdwatchers spot. The access
road is seasonal and for high clearance vehicles only. As this is an
isolated location, it would be wise to let someone know you were planning
a visit and an estimate of when you would return. Permits are
available at Camooweal Post and General Store.
Camooweal Caves National Park Info Sheet
Just out of town on the Georgina River are two beautiful waterholes,
Lake Francis and Lake Canellan, where bird watchers from
around Australia come to see the abundant birdlife. Bush camping for SELF
CONTAINED VECHILES is available. Head out of town towards the Northern
Territory on the Barkly Highway and take first turn left over the big
bridge on the Georgina River. Turn left before cattle yards. You can then
keep following that road (takes you full length of both water holes)
Dirt road subject to wet weather conditions.
Take a walk through Camooweal cemetery in our small outback town and see
the beautiful headstones from an era gone by.
