Longreach Waterhole (Apex Riverside Camp)

This camp is located about 4km from Longreach close to an old, unused bridge across the Thomson River.
You must set up camp at least 20m away from the adjacent Picnic Area where the toilets, BBQ’s picnic tables with shelters are located. There is water available here but it is not suitable for drinking.

The camping area is a large and very open and can take the biggest rigs. The majority of the surface at the campsite is river clay which can become very dusty in dry weather and very sticky when it rains. It is probably best to avoid this camp in wet weather.

Longreach Waterhole a very popular camp and can fill up quickly especially in peak tourist season.

To get here from Longreach, take the Landsborough Highway towards Winton for 4km and then turn east and follow the road to the motocross track. The camping area is on the left hand side by the river.

The camp is no longer free but incurs a small fee that is payable at the Longreach Visitor Information Centre.
