Camping Across The Western Downs

Home » Journey » Camping Trips » Camping Across The Western Downs

For those who live on the east coast of Australia, West usually means heading out into yonder. Attractions are often few and far between, and there’s a lot of ass-numbing driving to get to the different places. West also usually means the outback, but between the iconic coastal fringes and the famous desert plains lie fields and fields of agriculturally altered landscapes and seemingly not much more.

The Western Downs is no different. While much of the land is used for deplorable reasons as well as for yielding crops, there’s also a noticeable lack of nature and nature-based activities to do (except Bunya National Park. See my Bunya Mountains Camping Trip for a personal experience of Bunya). But there’s got to be something out there that’s worthwhile. Right?

With curiosity getting the better of me, I decided to find out for myself and spent a few days driving and camping across the Westerns Downs to see whether this subregion of the Darling Downs really was a whole heap of nothing or not. To my delight, I was pleasantly surprised.
