Miliyanha Campground - Millstream Chichester NP

National Park - Western Australia

Favourite

Modern campground in bush setting with pit toilets, camp kitchen with gas bbq and hot water.  Adjacent to Millstream Homestead. Close to Millstream Creek and pools that attract wildlife.

Millstream Chichester National Park is an oasis in the desert, nestled within the chocolate brown rocks of the Chichester Range, dotted with spinifex and snappy gums. Permanent pools are fed by springs that draw water from the underground aquifer within porous dolomite rock. 

Within the Homestead Visitor Centre and along interpretive walk trails you can find out more about the Yinjibarndi people’s resourcefulness and the pastoralists’ lifestyle, as well as the ecology and diversity of Millstream’s wetlands, woodlands and arid rocky plains and ranges.

It is not staffed but rangers and campground hosts frequently visit and maintain this facility.  In the case of an emergency only, Rangers can be contacted at the office, via the campground hosts (April-October) or in their private residences.
