Purni Bore Campground - Witjira National Park

National Park - South Australia


Witjira National Park features more than 120 mound springs. The park includes the National Heritage-listed Dalhousie Springs, used by Aboriginal people for thousands of years as a source of food, shelter and medicine. You can swim in the main spring’s warm waters. The area is home to unique species of fish such as the Dalhousie hardyhead and other rare aquatic life found nowhere else in the world.

The attraction of the springs, combined with some delightful camping spots and quality visitor facilities, make Witjira one of the most popular parks in the outback.

If you're lucky enough to be visiting the park a few weeks after a soaking rain, you'll be rewarded with the ephemeral wildflowers bursting into bloom.

Purni Bore is a pleasant camping spot with abundant birdlife, however visitors need to take their own drinking water and supplies. Generators are allowed but must be turned off between 10pm and 7am. A Desert Parks Pass is required to camp at Purni Bore and gain access east of Dalhousie. You do not need to book this campsite online as long as you have a Desert Park Pass.

Important info for the HOT shower to work:  You must run the tap in the sink outside the shower for 3 minutes before turning the shower tap on inside.  If you don't, then all you get is a freezing shower.  Trust me.... it's freezing cold if you don't!!
