Stayed here 1 night whilst heading north. Great camping spot with many shaded sites. Only $5 through an honesty box. Great history of the old town of Farina as well. Better than being in a town!

Beautiful little spot to camp and there was no one else there!! There are toilets and showers with a donkey boiler if you want hot water. So many birds - they will wake you at first light!

Great camping spot between Leigh Creek and Maree. A heritage railway town and railhead for pastoral properties and mines. There has been refurbishment of many old buildings and an informative railway precinct. Bush camping with available showers and toilets along a creek.
