West Branch Camp - Carnarvon National Park

National Park - Queensland


Get away from it all and spend a night under the stars in this peaceful riverside camping area. Popular thanks to its central location, this shady woodland camping area is nestled beside the west branch of the Maranoa River. Spend a night here on your 4WD exploration through the park on the Mount Moffatt circuit drive, or use the camping area as your jump off point for the Carnarvon Great Walk. After setting up camp sit back and watch the wildlife as it passes through on the way to the river. More than 170 bird species have been recorded in this section of the park—how many can you spot from your camp chair?
