Revel in the vast rolling landscape of Ka Ka Mundi country on the 4WD journey to reach Bunbuncundoo Springs camping area. Ancient sandstone overlaid with basaltic lava has been eroded over thousands of years creating the scattering of basalt outcrops you see today. Lush oases of tree ferns and coral ferns around Ka Ka Mundi’s springs attract many birds including king parrots, figbirds and wompoo fruit-doves.

Set up your tent or off-road camper trailer and relax in the tranquil surroundings. Walk down to see the springs—one of the recharge springs for the Great Artesian Basin.
