Camping trip out past Winton, Western QLD - photos

Postby scottyboy » Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:50 pm

2 Weeks ago, the wife, the 2 kids and I took the Pajero and camper trailer for a week long trip out to Winton, Western Qld from Brisbane.

We had a 8 days to do it in - it was pretty full on. We stopped at Carnarvon Gorge for one night, Lake Maraboon near Emerald for 2 nights and then onto a property past Winton for 3 nights. Only stopped at Mitchell for one night on way back.

A lot of driving but well worth it. The highlight was the property we camped at past Winton. Amazing scenery and aboriginal sites - very hot for this time of year - 35 during day but nights very mild. We also visited Lark Quarry dinosaur tracks site - which was about another 50 klms and the Qantas museum on the way back in Longreach.

Took a lot of photos - here are just a handful - hope you enjoy ;)

Hi there...pretty new on here but have been wanting to do a trip similar to yours out towards Longreach.

The property you stayed on out near Winton..is that where those spectacular photos are from?

Can anyone stay at this property?

Cheers,
Neil

Hey Neil,

You bet you can stay there! Its called Carisbrooke station. Yep all the photos after "Property past Winton" except for the last photo (thats lark quarry) are on the property.

Here is their link.
http://www.carisbrooketours.com.au/

We were looking for a scenic outback experience and we were not disappointed - just a bueatiful place - and the property owners are very nice.

I also recomend the morning tour - where we got a lot of our great photos. A lot of the property you can see only if you take a tour - but there is a lot of great stuff you can see yourself.

If you want any more info - just send me a private message.
