Visitors can camp overnight for free (maximum 20-hour stay), or you may like to day trip from Cloncurry or Mount Isa - both with a drive time of 1 hour 10 minutes. There are no facilities so you must be self sufficient. Take your rubbish with you. The area is surrounded by spectacular scenery and abundant with wildlife.

To get to Fountain Springs, you need to travel the Fountain Springs Circuit which is around 40km long and requires a 4WD vehicle.

Starting at the Fountain Springs Rest Area on Barkly Highway (60km east of Mount Isa or 60km west of Cloncurry), follow the track to Ballara, passing by the Corella River. Along the way, you'll see Mount Philip on your left with its volcanic peak. The large split in the Fountain Range marks the entrance to Fountain Springs.
