Information

One of 4 camping areas in the Mt Moffatt section of the Carnarvon National Park. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended and are essential to get around the park. The Dargonelly Rock Hole area is accessible for high-clearance camper trailers and off-road caravans or buses. This is the only camping area where large buses are permitted.

The campground is a semi-open area that is flat with plenty of large trees. Alongside you'll find a permanent rock hole in Marlong Creek. The close proximity of the rock holes allows for keen campers to have a relaxing swim, although caution is required as the depth of water can change dramatically within the rock holes. It is recommended that no jumping and diving into the water occurs for safety reasons.

Facilities include a tap for water, a pit toilet, and communal fire rings. No bins.
At an altitude of over 700 m winter nights can be sub zero and even the birds will come up to the fire to keep warm.

A camping permit is required. Book online as sites are limited to 30 people.

Directions: to reach Mt Moffatt from Mitchell, drive north on Forestvale-Mitchell Rd (unsealed) to reach Mt Moffatt Rd at Womblebank Station. Beware when wet especially when towing.

Alternatively, from Injune you have two options; head west along Womblebank Gap Road until you reach Mt Moffatt Rd and then head north, or head north along Forfar-Injune Rd via Westgrove and then swing west until you reach the Mt Moffatt Rd at Merivale River 14km north of Womblebank Station.

Womblebank Station to Dargonelly Rock Hole is 102km and is approx a 2.5hr drive in dry conditions.
