Carnegie Station

Private Campground - Western Australia


Over 1 million acres of arid desert to explore on this working cattle station, this is one of Australia’s remotest locations.

With early pioneer history, beautiful sandstone scenery, billabongs to swim in and adventures to discover, a visit to Carnegie Station will become an unforgettable memory.

Surprise yourself at what you find as you explore the creeks, salt lakes and tall stands of ghost gum trees.

Search for dingoes, kangaroos and a vast array of birdlife to the wild brumbies and camels that roam the open spaces.

Refresh yourself with a clean shower and supplies at the visitor centre before planning your next day’s adventure around the campfire.
