Currawinya protected area doubles in size

The Queensland Government has acquired three properties adjacent to the existing Currawinya National Park, more than doubling the size of the park and increasing protection of the region’s significant natural and cultural values. The purchase of Boorara (115,000ha), Werewilka (53,000ha) and Bingara (21,000ha) will bring Currawinya National Park to a total area of around 344,000ha, and make it one of Queensland’s largest national parks.

Camping in Currawinya

Visitors can bush camp at Ourimperee Waterhole behind the Currawinya Woolshed or at several sites on the Paroo River near Caiwarro. Alternatively, bush camp at Myninya—a semi-permanent wetland in the heart of Currawinya.

Camping permits are required and fees apply. A tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site.

Park-specific conditions

  • All camping areas are closed when the Paroo River floods.
  • Do not collect firewood from the national park—penalties apply. Bring your own clean mill off-cuts or use fuel stoves instead.
