Lara Wetlands – Barcaldine, Qld

Lara Wetlands came highly recommended by WikiCamps, and since we were passing through Barcaldine we decided to go the extra kilometres, spend a few dollars and find out for ourselves. Jo, who runs Lara, is a delightful and welcoming person who has put so much effort into establishing the camping area and thermal pool. It all looks great and it was a peaceful and relaxing place to spend a bit of time.

The artesian bore at Lara ensures a permanent waterhole.

The artesian bore feeds the thermal pool which is the perfect place to relax at the end the day.

Looking towards the shower and toilet block. There are flushing toilets (such luxury!) but you need to set a fire under the donkey hot water service if you want a hot shower.

Around the other side of the lake is the ‘funny dunny’…which you can use if you are so inclined!

Lara is also a working cattle station and is a very interesting and welcoming place to stay.

    Interesting as always, the thermal pool looks most inviting after a day on the road or in the bush.
