When we were at Barcaldine we started to meet people who had been there and they advised us that it was very nice and that the road was sealed all the way . The maps showed an unsealed road. We aslo heard stories about Tennis courts etc and that power was available for $5 a night. Fresh water was also avaiable at various places and that the cabins afforded great views over the lake for sundowners.
We set off from the weir at Barcaldine and then stopped off intown to stock up on groceries as we planned to stay a while. On our way we stopped at Aramac for a quick look around before heading out.
It was a nice drive there and we passed through some interesting counttryside.
When we arrived we were pleasantly susurprised to find ther were quite a few other people there but there was still room for us on a powered spot. We had a lovely outlook over the back wetland area which was often busy wiht different bird and there was always ducks and grebes around.
