In fact this park is what I would picture an Australian Safari to be. I’d never seen so many roos, and there were emus, eagles and all kinds of birds at the waterholes too – it was incredible!

Amongst otherwise flat country there are a couple of sections of track known as “jump-ups” where the track does exactly that.

It’s a quiet place too. Or at least it was for us – we didn’t see another vehicle or camper during our stay.
