Our camp set up at Wooramel station

The river bed one way

And looking the other way towards the campground

One of the hot tubs- there are two

The communal bonfire, happy hour area. Note the chairs made of anything,...

Looking bck the other way over communal area- the river is on...

Some wildflowers on the station ( small purple daisies)

And some more-this bush has very pale violet flowers at its tips...

We left Carnarvon about 10am and had intended to head for another coastal campground called Gladstone. However, when re viewing other stops in the area, the lure of warm artesian pools at Wooramel station beckoned! The camping here is beside another totally empty river bed, (apparently it runs 2-3 times a year on the surface but there is water underneath) but it is still a pretty spot. The station has set up the camping part of their business really well. Each camp site has its own fire pit and they have on site showers and toilets. There is a communal bonfire every evening at 5pm for happy hour and they do a camp oven dinner on Wednesday evenings. There are a number of walks to do and they have 4 wheel drive tracks you can explore- so plenty to do! They even give you a list of all the birds you can find so of course I aim to cross as many off the list as possible! The only down side is the gazillion flies that attach themselves to you as soon as you go outside. The flynets that we bought in Winton are going to come in very handy here!

After setting up camp we had a bit of a walk around before going up to the bonfire for happy hour. I think the pay for 3 nights, stay for 4, deal they talked us into taking will end up being a relaxing and comfortable few days.
