  • It's a good idea to plan your visit during the cooler months, between April and September.
  • Brindingabba National Park is a remote and rugged place and weather can change quickly.
  • Unsealed roads may become impassable, even with light rainfall. After rain, affected unsealed roads within the park and Bourke Shire will close. Be prepared to leave early if rain is forecast or wait until roads reopen. Do not drive on closed roads.

This quiet little campground is a welcome stop for adventurous campers travelling the Dowling Track outback route from Bourke to Birdsville.

Pitch your tent or caravan beside the coolabah trees that line Brindingabba Creek and admire the spectacular sunrises and sunsets of ‘corner country’ in Outback NSW. There’s plenty of room to spread out and each campsite has its own picnic table.

Although the creek is not always flowing the birds are always about. Pull up a chair by the creek bed for an early evening or morning bird watching session. Beginners may see bee-eaters and woodswallows darting about the creek bed, noisy mobs of pink cockatoos in the trees and visiting waterbirds. Experienced birders can hone their skills differentiating between babblers, treecreepers and other little brown (and not so brown) birds.

Get a taste of the park’s vast woodland plains, wetlands and flash of pink and yellow wildflowers on the scenic drive. Then loop back to the campground to settle in for the night beneath a blanket of evening stars.
