Explorers Caravan Park

Located on Dowling Street in the town of Thargomindah, the Explorers Caravan Park is a purpose built Caravan and Holiday Park with all the ‘mod-cons’ of home set in the middle of Australia’s Outback!

The park offers accommodation for either Caravanners or Campers, along with modern en-suite Cabins and Bunkhouse style accommodation with wheelchair access. Powered sites are set amongst rows of native shrubs and trees, whilst unpowered sites are in a typical Outback setting with fixed fire places.

The Explorers Caravan ParkPark is only 100 metres from the heart of Thargomindah Township, and is situated 50 metres from the banks of the Bulloo River. The park offers a well equipped Camp Kitchen, Gas and Electric BBQ’s, a modern Amenities Block, and is rated as “Environmentally Friendly” with a “Green Star” rating.

The Explorers Caravan Park makes the perfect launching pad for that trip into Australia’s desert regions. Visit Cameron Corner, the Dig Tree or Innamincka, or take a trip down the Dowling Track to Hungerford, and the Currawinya National Park. For the slightly less adventurous, sealed roads lead to Lake Bindegolly, and Eulo to the east, or you can travel west to Noccundra, and then venture north to Eromanga, and Quilpie, and return south to Thargomindah via Toompine, and Yowah.

If you don’t want to venture too far afield, you can fish in the Bulloo River or net big blue yabbies for dinner. Take a walk along the Bulloo River from the Park to the Cobb & Co Crossing, or walk out to the Hydro Power Plant Display on the outskirts of town. Visit the historic Thargomindah Hospital building, which doubles as a Visitor Information Centre, or have a look through Leahy House, which is located right in the heart of town. After a day of “exploring”, the Camp Kitchen is a popular spot for all guests to relax, and meet fellow travellers to exchange tales and ideas for the next day’s activities.
