We did the tour with indigenous ranger Tanya who was knowledgeable and passionate about her ancestors. The physical landscape is stunning! Tanya very helpfully got our lost phone back to us too! We also did the self drive tour which showed the pastoral history

This was our first stop. Really different to what Victoria has. It was a long dirt road, and we saw no one. Headed into the visitor centre and filled out our camping tickets. Australia is truly beautiful, a must see National Park. The wildlife, this...More

Hi Elbray, It depends on whether you have a four wheel drive or not, and whether you are camping or not. This time of year is normally very beautiful, but it has been exceptionally wet, making it challenging if you don't... More
