If you're a self-sufficient camper, stay at Eckerboon Lake campground. A great stop if you're on a Broken Hill road trip along the Barrier Highway, set up your tent or caravan under the clear skies and admire the colourful sunsets, sunrises and stargazing of Outback NSW.

As you cook up a hot barbecue breakfast, enjoy views of the park's rolling plains. Then explore the nearby shearing sheds, and take a leisurely stroll along the Lake View Woolshed short walk.

Spring is an ideal time to stay, with its warm days and cooler nights. And after rainfall, beautiful displays of mauve, yellow and white wildflowers blanket the landscape. Keep an eye out for darling peas and paper daisies, as well as tracts of mulga and nelia shrub which light up with bright yellow flowers in spring. At dawn and dusk you might see red kangaroos, emus or an elusive short-beaked echidna
