Noonbah (which means Red Soil) is south west of Longreach, in Western Queensland. The area abounds in different landforms, which give a wide range of habitat for different species of plants, birds, and animals. From red sandplains to sandstone ridges peppered with ghost gums, from arid Acacia woodland to channel country and through to spinifex covered hard country, it will keep you endlessly fascinated.
Boom and bust country, it bounces between drought and flooding rains, with short periods in between. Noonbah is now being run by it’s fourth generation of the Emmott family.
If you’re a self-contained bush camper and would like to spend some time by one of Australia’s beautiful outback waterholes, contact the owners of this magnificent property. The iconic landscapes, flora and fauna, birds and clear star filled night skies offer endless opportunities for the experienced, and even the amateur, photographer to get spectacular shots to take with you.
The sites are large and drive through, so space is not an issue, but there are no services out here, so the right equipment and set-up is essential.
The last 56km is dirt, so it can be affected by wet weather. Campers must check on current conditions by contacting the station owners before heading out.
