Information

Campground at the Old Andado Homestead site. Facilities are limited and not reliable (often no water to operate the toilets or shower so be prepared for any eventuality).

Old Andado is the former home of Mac & Molly Clark who are the most notable pioneers of the Andado cattle station that operated here from the early 1900's. In the early years, various pastoral leases were owned by people on the land that later became known as Andado Station in the 1920s. The station also changed hands several times. The original home that is now heritage listed, was built in 1922. See separate listing Old Andado Homestead for all the history, photos and other information.

Mac Clarke died in 1979 and Molly stayed on to manage the property. Molly died in 2012 however a volunteer caretaker system has been in place to keep up preservation of the site and to enable campers to visit between May and October each season. An announcement by the family in July 2018 stated that the station would be leased to a tourism business to ensure that camping and access to the old homestead will be ongoing and managed professionally. To this day, visitors have continued to gain access via this route and there is good signage and local information to help you find your way.
