Lara Wetlands 2

Day-trippers love Lara Wetlands. You’ll find this true outback oasis just 28 kilometres south of Barcaldine and 13 kilometres inland from the Landsborough Highway. It’s accessible by two-wheel drive, but be prepared to take your car along some unsealed roads and cattle grids. You’ll not only find a working station, but an activity area to keep everyone entertained. Discover the wetlands by canoe or kayak, or take a therapeutic dip in a natural artesian pool, heated to perfection like a big, outback hot tub. The wetlands are a photographer’s dream with dead ghost gums standing proud out of the water. They are so beautiful that this writer went twice – to capture their silhouettes while the sun receded behind them and then a second to take starry photographs in this eerily perfect bush setting.


“This park is fantastic not a single negative comment, large grassy sites, every night they put on billy tea and damper and most nights entertainment.
The managers are wonderful and what a great bloke Geoff is, nothing any trouble and always a smile on his face. Will be coming back.”

“Great value all round. Excellent hosts and we have stayed here several times.
Can not understand why people select Longreach CP, when this facility is available.”
